Predictions (its a big word too!!)
I would like to start by saying that if you read my last post I was correct about the Super Bowl outcome. Not only did I pick the winning team but I also think that Boldin was robbed of the MVP award......but I digress.
Yesterday while at work a patient of mine asked me how old I was. I responded with '29'. That's funny because I am not 29 and haven't been for 4 years. Am I the only one who does this? Subconsciously do I feel like I am still in my twenties?? Or is it the memory loss that comes with old age that is starting to kick in? It was the first time I stopped and thought 'Holy crap, I'm almost in my mid thirties'. Never had I cared about my age, as it is true that you are only as old as you feel. With a toddler at home with endless amounts of energy, working full time, completing a big move etc, etc, I have been feeling a bit 'older' and run down. So it surprised me when I blurted out '29'. Shortly after I said 29 the patient did make a comment to my flecks of grey hair...Ok they may be more than just flecks....platinum highlights if you will. Using just for men, touch of grey is still a few years away though. All this reminded me of a story from around a year ago when I went to get my haircut at a local barbershop. I sat in the chair and the female hair dresser said 'you nice looking young man. how you want your hair cut'. then she got a closer look at my hair and said 'Oh, from the front you look like young man, but from up close your hair look like Old Man'. Really? That is a good way to get a small tip or no tip at all. Just insult the customer. She then said 'you should get hair cut like that', and pointed at a picture of a guy who looked like Mr.Petermen from Seinfeld.......seriously....Mr. F-ing Petermen.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that just because I have some grey it doesn't make me old. The fact that I wear depends and drink prune juice while watching old re-runs of murder she wrote does(I'm kidding). I've realized being 30 is great. Having a beautiful wife, and a young son, just makes life that much better and gives life a purpose and direction. I don't think I would have been as prepared for a child in my twenties or responsible enough to move across Canada. I have enjoyed my thirties greatly so far and they are only a third of the way through.
Well, as for revelations I don't have any. It was a big word that looked good in the subject and possibly helped keep people reading my ramblings on realizations.
As for other big words : colloquialism, rhombicosidodecahedron, and CN tower.
