You are not young anymore if……..

Yet another year passes, a birthday crosses, age increases, dejavu and introspection sets in

You are not young anymore if……..
……the young actress you once mooned over starts playing the leading man’s mother
……the neighbour’s stereo irritates you and not vice versa
……you walk around a puddle of water and not through it
……without your glasses you can’t read anything unless it’s at ‘arms length’
……you actually don’t mind waiting in traffic
……you hate the remix but love the original score
……every day you deal with diabetes, hypertension etc but you are NOT a doctor
……the paediatrician who vaccinated you has featured in the obituary
