Many commented on my birthday last week (I tend to forget these things but the joys of technology ensured others didn’t let me).

An old school friend pointed out that we’re now in a position to empathise more fully with Dennis. As Evan said;

I like Dennis. I like his approach to life. He’s a filth-shoveller by trade and he’s ok with that, although he dreams of greater things. He knows what he thinks. He speaks his mind. He believes in something and stands up for it.  He’s found a partner in life who understands him. Most importantly, he’s not afraid of standing up against authority and challenging it – especially if he thinks an injustice is being done.

But most of all I like Dennis because as of today we are the same age. “I’m 37 – I’m not old!”

Who, you may ask, is Dennis. Well for those over 30 or so, I present, and remind you of the great (well lowly) man himself.
