Unlike Jay Z and Mr Hudson, I have no intention of being forever young, I just want to age gracefully and enjoy each stage life brings my way. But I would be lying if I told you that the list below did not freak me out a bit.
A friend of mine sent me this list via BB and I quickly forwarded it to all my friends, just so they feel as old as I felt. LOL
Time flies became a reality with these;
my kid sister is about to get into the university and in my head she is only ten years old!
Some fresh kid in the labour market was declaring love, thinking that we were age mates, the little boy was prolly writing his JSCE when I was writing my final year project!
