I received a call from Benny last night, bringing news that Uncle Saw (one of the senior citizens from my church) had just passed away. It was pretty surprising news, especially since I last saw him on Sunday looking very much in good health. Hmmm...life is fleeting indeed. But we are immortal until He calls us to go.
One of my car tyres also "died" this morning on the way to work. Actually, it was already showing signs that it was time to go. For the last 2 weeks or so, I've had to pump air into it every few days to "prolong" its "life".
This morning, its time was up. It gave up its last breath of air (literally) somewhere along the KESAS expressway. Thank God the nearest petrol station was only about 1 km away. When I arrived at the petrol station, I tried resuscitating it with the air pump but it was already too late. My Goodyear Eagle F1 205/45/16 had passed away.
P.S. No disrespect to Uncle Saw. He will be missed.
