    I got to do something on my 40th that I'd always wanted to do since I was in my 20s---rent a HUGE limousine and drive around all night. OK, that may not sound like much, but this was awhile back when we had money for the first time in our lives, and I thought it would be the coolest thing in the world. Well, it was one of those rare things that's even more fun than I imagined it would be.......we were all dressed up, and we took the entire family all over town, even through our old neighborhood (where I stood up through the sun roof and whooped & hollered!). We drank from the well-stocked bar, played music, and just had a blast. It was a riot when we got out to use the bathroom at Target, and everybody was looking at us to see who the "celebrities" might be.

    That was something that when I'm 90 and drooling in my lap, I'll still remember fondly. Best damned B-day I ever had. I figure when I hit 50 in a few years, I'll go for something really exotic......maybe parasailing in the Bahamas???

    When a couple of our doctors turned 40, their office staffs were merciless. One staff put a sign up in the doctor's office that said: Give him a pill, Dr. "Jones" is over the hill. The filled his private office at the office with hundreds of black balloons and had it announced on our local radio station that it was his 40th birthday. And took him downstairs to eat being pushed in a wheelchair. The other doctor's nurses gave him a walker and a package of depends for his 40th birthday and put a big sign up outside that announced his 40th birthday.

    I bet if you would do a google search on 40th birthday gifts/pranks you would get a lot of ideas....or just keep watching this thread. We have some very devious (creative) people when it comes to stuff like that.....:roll

    My mom (who is an artist but I am sure computer graphics can work too) got a poster of Burt Reynolds in the 70's(his sexy Cosmo pose) and painted their friends face over Burt's, put a caption on it sayin "Eat your heart out Burt" and framed it. Dr. R and the rest of the party absolutely LOVED it.
