Objection 1. It seems that we should not still celebrate Kevin's birth today, since he has been on earth for twenty-two years already.
Objection 2. Further, it seems that celebration does not befit an occasion that marks his advancing in age.
Objection 3. Further, as shown above, the day of Kevin's birth far pre-dates the current day in question. Therefore, today is not Kevin's birthday.
I answer that, as the Philosopher relates, "Old age: A great sense of calm and freedom. When the passions have relaxed their hold, you ...may have escaped, not from one master but from many" (Plato). We should, therefore, celebrate heartily the anniversary of Kevin’s birth and his advancement in age.
