Day 10: Double Figures

When I was really little I remember my brother telling how Dad had asked what it felt like to be in double figures on his 10th Birthday. It all sounded so grown up and I couldn’t wait for the next 4 years when it would be my turn for Dad to ask me what it was like. The big day came and sure enough after being wished a happy birthday my Dad asked me what it was like to be in double figures – I felt like all grown up and was pretty sure I was almost a man. I mumbled to him, “s’alright”

At the time it seemed like the most significant milestone but in hindsight it was a baby step to the next milestones that come and go, until I reach 100 years old. I’d love to get to 100 – perhaps my dad will be there asking me, “what’s it like to be in triple figures son?”

So today is day 10 of the challenge and it does feel good to get to double figures, a little milestone ticked. But now I can’t wait to get to the magic triple figures – that will be something to celebrate…….. and then another 265 to go.
