Just got out of HR. I was doing my exit interview with my forties. It was required as I’m leaving age 49 and starting my new position, in my fifties, at midnight.
HR asked me what I did with my forties, which officially began on December 31, 2002 and end tonight at 11:59 PM. I said I started a Mets blog with a friend of mine when I was 42 and I’ve enjoyed doing that a lot ever since.
Then HR asked me what else I did with the past ten years. I mentioned a few other Mets-related things, which led me into a tangent about some games I went to, some others I watched on TV and a bunch of people I got to know because of the Mets.
HR interrupted and asked if there was anything else I wanted to talk about from my forties, specifically anything that had absolutely nothing to do with the Mets.
I said no, not really.
And with that, HR made some notes in my file, shook my hand and wished me luck in my fifties.
So I guess that was it for the past decade of my life.
