DAY 26 – Aug 28 it’s like you’ve gained a year an extension on your essay amended deadline won a holiday fate has lobbed a little extra life your way time to languish in the 9s before hitting those big zeros nobody need ever know if there ain’t no party that big birthday bash you planned is shelved re-scheduled 12 months hence 50 60 70 all the noughties 18 21 and 40 can appear next year ta dah! with even more ecstatic cheer meanwhile you you lucky dog will wax a little younger linger longer in this stay of age enjoy the amnesty rock longevity wallow in infancy significant festivity on hold until next year.
