COME GROW OLD WITH ME, PLEASE!

“Come grow old with me, the best is yet to be.”

Really?

Hmmmmm

Seriously?

Hmmmmm

Let’s see about that idea of “the best is yet to be.”

About a month ago I could not find my glasses.

In the house.

Nothing unusual about this.

i often lose my glasses in the house.

I have given up trying to remember where I last had them.

i just wait and they eventually show up in some weird place which always leads me to exclaim, “How did they get there?”

This time, though, was different.

I didn’t have to wait long to find them.

As I eventually realized that I was wearing them.

Come grow old with me…

My room is cold this morning.

I spy my red comfy robe hanging on the rack at the foot of my bed.

I think, “I will go to the bathroom and grab my robe on the way back to the bed because it is cold in here!”

I come out of the bathroom.

I sit down on the side of my bed.

Why am I still cold?

I turn to my left and there is the robe I thought I had put on still hanging on the rack at the foot of my bed!

😳

Yeah, come grow old with me…

Wiry gray tendrils sprout in a thinning bed of eyebrows.

A few days ago, I stood in front of a mirror as I put on my pants.

Before I could blink, there was a jiggle that I had never noticed before, a thigh jiggle, actually more like a thigh wobble.

I could hardly believe my eyes.

A thigh wobble.

But, not just one wobble, two thigh wobbles.

I thought I had mis-seen what I saw so I intentionally shook my legs.

Those thighs began to wobble together as though they were participating in some synchronized geriatric dance routine.

Oh, but come grow old with me….

I try not to stress too much about aging because stress can bring about frowning which can turn into permanent wrinkles, as if a new wrinkle could be spotted in the field of the old “wrankles.”

Has anyone seen my glasses?

Please, come grow old with me….
