I wud make no mistake on this. It feels really bad to get old.I never felt this way when I was in my teens. Even my 18-20 age birthdays seemed to be fine.But now, after a couple of years of my 20th brithday mark( U thought I wud reveal my age here?)I feel a little bad to face the peak of adulthood.I can no longer do things much to my will, anything I do is flung back to me with a comment" poruppa nadanthukko, innum 6 maasathula kalyanam".
Some signs to tell you that you are getting old
When anyone and everyone talks to you only about getting married, but not stop there and talk further about family, kids, responsibility et all
When all your friends start telling you " enjoy to the fullest now,you wud never get these days back" - as though there is no tomorrow
When you get mails from classmates / batchmates sharing the news of their marriage & kids
When the kids are told to address you as aunty instead of akka
When young cousins talk about some new mobile technology, new hang out places, new restaurants and you just blink
Every year, I excitingly wait for my birthday, but the day comes, I start feeling that this day should never end.But it always happens that I get a year older at the end of the very same day.Sometimes, I even dream of people giving me sympathetic looks as though I have lost all my charm.Its impossible to stop thinking like this and sometimes, such kind of dreams become an integral part of your sleep. Hhhhhmmmmmmmm....
And now, just 3 days after my birthday, I again eagerly wait for the next one.
