A group of friends & i were talking about the now famous Ferrari & taxi accident when i said the Ferrari driver got off easy by dying. My friend, however, said no one wants accidents to happen so we shouldn’t be say he asked for it. But… If u drive knowing u’re so dead drunk (assuming the Ferrari driver was), aren’t u asking for it? To me it’s no different from manslaughter!
While i’ve never been overly secretive about my age (ask & i’ll tell you), i’ve never publicised it either. Part of the reason is cos i didn’t want people to judge me cos of my age. If you think i look a certain age, then so be it (be it younger or older). But recently, when dealing with people from chauvinistic societies, i’ve come to realise that being older is good. Although older doesn’t automatically mean wiser, it’s undeniable that people respect you that little bit more when you’re older. So i’ve been proud to announce that i just hit 33. I even updated my Linkedin page to make sure people know that i’ve entered the workforce for 11 years. I’m now considering following my Japanese friend & putting the year i was born on my Facebook. That’s 1979 mind you! I’m 33 years old and bloody proud of it. I would even go as far as to say if you look as good as me when you hit 33, then we can engage in conversations about ageing. If you’re older than me & have maintained yourself well, then i hope i can follow in your footsteps.
So there you have it. Now, everyone please wish me a happy belated birthday cos my birthdate is 16 May 1979 & i’ll try not to look down on your figure or looks. Muahahahaha.
