Father Time Is A Real Bitch

by dimensionaltales

Life doesn’t discriminate between the sinners and the saints. It’s takes and takes and takes.

– Aaron Burr, Hamilton, “Wait for It”

Learning that I’m not as spry as I use to be is a reality that I’m slowly coming to grips with.  For the third in my life, I got sent home due to a medical inconveniences.  First time was when I was a stocker for the Burlington Coat Factory warehouse when I had an ingrown hair that became a painful nuisance. Then, I got my wisdom teeth pulled due to its growing danger. Now, I had to deal this pesky discomfort in my throat that’s preventing me from teaching.  The latter is something that got me really thinking about it.

I’ve always been a man who thought that I was younger than I was. I never liked the idea of letting my age be the deciding factor of what I can and can’t do. It’s not something I like to hear, either. My grandma is in her 80s and she’s still moving and grooving with her everyday life. My uncle is in his 50s and still a force to be reckon with in the realm of private security and martial art.  So, age isn’t really a good excuses.

But there is a moment in one’s life where you realize that your body is, indeed, aging. You learn that there are just some things that you may not be able to do everything you just to be able to do in your youth. And that’s the truth, no matter how youthful you may feel. I didn’t like thinking about that because it involves thinking about morality. It’s a pretty morbid topic to think about.

I know it’s something that will continue to pop up as long as I live. (No pun intended!) This is why I need to find a way to work out my crisis of morality. I know it’s normal. I understand it’s common to think about it but this is the first time that I’m actually holding some thought about it. It is a terrible feeling. A paralyzing feeling that it’s completely new to me.

It’s true. Everything they said about Father Time is true. He is a unforgiving bitch. Haha!

Now, please, don’t forget to follow me on my social media platforms (TwitterInstagram, and Goodreads) which are on the right side of my web page. Also, I do love hearing suggestions of what books to read outside of my norm (Science fiction and Fantasy) as I am a part of the Goodreads’ reading challenge for 2020. My goal is to read 115 books this year and I’ve completed that goal. However, I’m far from done with the challenge and I probably end up reading 120 before the year is out. I should get back to reading. lol
