Oh, jeeze. It happened. I turned 30. I can barely remember it; it just kind of snuck up on me.
Luckily, I'm in good company. This year, four GoComics features have turned or will turn 30: Luann, Arlo and Janis, In the Bleachers and Calvin and Hobbes.
Looking through the archives, I realized that these strips could teach me a lot about getting older (and hopefully wiser).
Unfortunately, the mirror might eventually become enemy No. 1.
And I might find new ways to fill my time (though I think I'd like to putter, too, even though I'm a girl.)
I need to keep an eye out for injury.
Using "when you're older" is a great way to get things done.
But there's no need to grow up too fast.
Happy anniversary to these great comics! Remember: 30 is the new 20. (Though who'd want to be 20 again?)
