..my children said I am cynical..and grumpy..
..and I said that I am trying to accept aging and trying to grow old gracefully..
..my friends said that I am like that goods on a shelf.. way past its expiry date..
..and I said that I still have it in me..but what it is that I still have, I really do not know..
..and my wife said, on seeing me struggling with those heavy flower pots, trying to arrange things, "Oi, abang, awak tu dah tua..buat cara tua.." (Attempts at translating what she said into the Queen's language failed..somehow I could not get the nuances of her jibe right.)
..the bank said sorry, you're too old for loans..
..my ex-wife said, see you in court..
..my granddaughter said, I love you, papatok..
