My purple diary is a bit dusty considering how long it has been since I wrote on here. I turned a year older this month. You know you are truly growing older/ old when you start introducing yourself as a 20 sth. Yes that’s me, I’m now 20 sth. You also know you are growing older when documents that ask you to enter your age agitate you. And you quickly scribble over 18 again that’s me! But it gets worse when they ask you to enter your date of birth (DOB) can things get anymore irritating? what are they trying to do? steal my identity or sign me up on this site! Yani! For real what does age have to do with anything? It’s a requirement to give age information on almost every application form. Bank account DOB Facebook registration DOB, smart card reg the same what’s it to you! I can’t remember any one time the birthday date on my ID helped me get anything. i think it’s only useful (forgive the irony) to underage kids with fake IDS while trying to get into a club or buy alcohol at uchumi, thanks to Mutotho.
I don’t mind growing old, I just don’t get why everyone has to know it especially some stranger somewhere using my information for some research so that they can keep making money off me no matter how old I am. All I’m saying is I think DOB is not as necessary as they ( whoever they are) make it seem. Age is not always a reflection of maturity if it was some people would always be 17. Nobody chooses to age,no one chooses not to, it’s simply part of us it just happens! Tomorrow you will be a day older in a hundred years my dear, I bet you, you will be as good as dead. Pun very much intended, too bad I won’t be alive to collect the bet. So yeah, no one chooses to be born, and no human can stop time we are mortals. We live, we Age and we die. A lot happens in between but today i don’t want to have a moral in this post. Just don’t ask me how old I am.😜
