The Signs of Aging
The following excerpt was taken from an MSN Messenger conversation in which Chuan Lui describes his life at the moment. Special thanks to MSN® Messenger®.
I feel that I'm aging. Real soon. Real fast. Real rapidly. 10 signs to show it.
- I begin treasuring every sunrise I see. Though I'm usually copying homework in the concourse and see nothing but "All - Hall". For I'm not sure if I'd see the sunrise tomorrow.
- I appear to be like a real bummer, delegating duties and assigning responsibilities. But I just want to make sure nothing somewhere will be incomplete without me.
- I go around tasting palatable good food I used to enjoy. For I wonder what incense will taste like.
- y=ex. Reflect that in the x-axis. That'd probably be how exponentially my energy level is decreasing everyday.
- I wonder if me being in the family is really a treasure. Or am i just grass. Translate that into chinese yourself because I just lack the energy to do so.
- Looking into the mirror, I see hair that is no longer black. In fact it contrasts with that.
- Ask a teenager what coke is like to him. And you'd probably know what coffee is like to me. Simple perking.
- "Yo what's up!" no longer appeals to me as a greeting. It lost to "WAH GIA LIT BO TAI JI ZO, SI BEH SIAN AR!"
- When I see pretty girls, I really wish they were mine. My granddaughters. Such that I can show them off to the other ah peks at the coffee shop the next day.
- I start to search for my Design and Technology (DnT) notes in secondary school. I want the best kind of lacquered wood to sleep with for the rest of my life. Or is it only 5 days after which they'd just make me so hot.
GP issues? Perhaps.
Some elderly in Singapore begin to feel that they are ostracised by the society. Discuss.
I hope my points helped.
