40 is the new 28.

It’s the square root of 1600.

And 00101000 in binary.

If you call Romania, you have to dial it.

In hexadecimal, it’s 28.

The Romans?  They would have called it XL.

I could easily give 40 reasons, too… 1 for each year.  40 reasons why we’re so happy to celebrate your day, so happy you’re here, so happy you’re the Daddy, the husband, the friend, and the all-round beefcake* home improvement legend that you are.

Happy 40th, Pancho!

* Best birthday greeting to Paul today, from our friend K: “Happy 40th — your wife still calls you ‘beefcake’ on a regular basis, so you’re all good.”
