Aging

Our ELT Manager Michael Hughes shared this lovely story about AGE. Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking, “surely I can’t look that old.”. Well . . . you’ll love this one.

My name is Hjh Zainiah. I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist.

I noticed his BDS degree on the wall, which bore his full name.

Suddenly, I remembered a tall , handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 25-odd years ago.

Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on, way back then?

Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate.

After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended St Xavier’s high school.

“Yes. yes, I did.’ he gleamed with pride.

“When did you graduate?” I asked.

He answered, “In 1987. Why do you ask?”

“You were in my class!!!!”, I exclaimed.

He looked at me closely.

Then, that ugly, old, bald, wrinkled faced, gray-haired, decrepit,
idiot, asked, “What subject did you teach” ?
