A significant matter looms on the horizon. Five days from now, the 7th of August, will be my birth day. Why this matter should be significant is a mystery equivalent to the mystery of why there is matter at all and whether we exist.
The more digits are added to
the number of years I've been on this planet, the more questions I have.
The question I have at this precise moment is:
Should I reveal the
exact number my day of birth signifies? If I do reveal this secret I
have closely guarded, will I get the tilt of the head, the indulgent
expression reserved for babies, kittens and the very old, accompanied by
exclamations of "Awww!" "Amazing!" "Well done!" and so on?
Because that possibility looms on the horizon, here is an advance warning.
