The Lunar New Year for me hasn’t been all that kind. The 1st day started with a slight temperature, slowly developing into a sore throat and now with some phlegm to be dealt with. So I suppose I had to really take a holiday on this holiday.
Maybe it’s age
When we were kids, we couldn’t help to be fascinated with simple tricks like “pop-pop”. However, as soon we became braver (and probably more crazy), cracking pop-pop with our bare hands then wanting to set off bigger and louder fireworks to lighting a TNT-like firecracker and tossing it as though it was an explosive… I did say crazy.
Alas, maybe it be age which has left me thinking now on most nights during Chinese New Year, “which crazy fellow is setting off fireworks which are overly loud (because they are nearby) at the hours some sick people need to go to bed”.
Sigh. I guess being ill during a festive season definitely pulls down your spirits in light of all the joy and laughter spreaded around.
Or, is it really just the age.
