Remember, O foolish mortal man

I recently (re)discovered a new Memento Mori. I was looking at myself in the mirror. And I saw the grey temples. My temples are greying. I knew it already, but they look more visible. Yes, I knew about the greying beard, and a while ago there was that stupid anti-wrinkle cream I received for free, which I never used. But my temples, well, I don't know why, but they are more visible. I mean, I still have a youthful enough face and as long as I shave (occasionally), the grey beard will not bother me. Moral of the story: a man should never watch himself in the mirror for too long.

I'm afraid the mirror fun has only just begun, young man.
