White Hair Day

I know the day would come, but still, it came as a bit of a shock.

Having white hair! Admittedly, I already have my first strand of white hair since I was in my twenties. But during that time, it was for me a symbol of adulthood (kuno). I even proudly showed it to those who dared to look. Removing it is a no-no. It stayed until today.

Then just last week, I was combing my hair, prior to going to bed. Lo and behold, I saw more strands of white hair! Oh well, at least two more. But still, it is a bit of a kick for me. Wow, I am getting old!

I am pleasantly surprised because I dont feel old at all. I still feel young and fit. It just goes to show that getting old is really a set of mind. Not in counting the years.

OMG, I've got lots of white hair to, but they're concealed deep under so hindi obvious. But I was surprised one day my sis made kalkal at andami nya nabunot! Hay.
But hey, age is a state of mind! Tingnan mo nga, we can still play in the rain. ;)
