Met Cubey at the bus stop on Saturday and she informed me that a classmate of ours in Secondary School is now 5 months pregnant. I had a similar conversation with Mel Li about friends our age becoming mothers and the reaction that I normally have is as follows:
1. Shit! Am I that old?
2. Shit! I want one too!!
3. Darn…but I don’t feel that old
4. Harumph…where’s my boyfriend and hubby-to-be lurking?
5. Bbbutt…my career hasn’t settled yet!!
Yes…more and more of my friends are getting married, settling down, becoming fathers and mothers. Gosh…I definitely have NOT crossed that path in life yet. Am a happy bachelorette except when those maternal instinct/ bio-clock starts ticking. As a former tutor said to me once, “Your expiration date is coming.” Gah….
