The Best Year of My Life -vvv

Some time in 1992, I concluded that that year was the best year of my life. Since then, I occasionally review my life to see how well each year went. In the 14 years that have passed, I have had some terrible years and some truly enjoyable ones. Each year had its ups and downs but no single year can be considered better than '92 in most aspects.

In 1992, I can get a bus ride for less than 30 cents and a decent lunch for a dollar. The public playgrounds were more creatively designed and allowed for imaginative ways of using them. The forest to the south of my neighbourhood was a convenient source of adventure. There were strange creatures to find, wild fruits to eat and lots of free raw material for handicraft and school projects.

I didn't need to warm up before playing any sport. I could run in the sun wearing PE attire under my uniform without worrying about heatstroke. I didn't need a credit card, an EZ link card or any card for that matter. I never ran out of money. Career was too distant to be of concern. And girls were just irrelevant.

I had none of my current responsibilities and all the time in the world. I was an astronomer, a paleontologist and a martial arts exponent simultaneously. I was invulnerable, invincible and infinitely intelligent. My death was inconceivable. No math problem was unsolvable.

1st October was a holiday. Every day was a holiday.
