A weird sign of aging – One of my hands is typing faster than the other. It scrambles my words. I had a hard time figuring out why my letters get flipped and that’s the only explanation I have. I don’t know if one hand got faster or the other got slower but they are out of sync. I wonder if there is grant money to do research on it.
Another sign of aging – One morning this week I woke up and had someone else’s feet. My feet have always been attractive. No bulging bunions, bumps or nail fungus. They were always slim. Maybe a little flat footed but you didn’t notice that. This week my nails were thicker. I needed a hack saw to trim them. No fungus just steel nails. My feet still work without pain but I’d sure like my pretty ones back.
The neighbor – My next-door neighbor has a gorgeous yard. It’s terraced with all sorts of plantings. I love that I look at it but don’t have to take care of it. Best of all worlds until this week. She was out there weeding. It was hot but she had on boots. I looked at them and she laughed. She said it’s for the black snakes. Yikes! There are black snakes in my area? I know they are good ones, but I don’t like any snake. I don’t have areas of deep plantings so I’m hoping I don’t meet up with any. If I do you will hear me no matter where you are.
Junk mail – Lately I’ve been getting a lot of junk email about lip injections. Never researched it or scrolled it. I have no intention of doing anything to my lips. They are what they are but I’m starting to wonder if there is a message here. I checked in the mirror and they don’t look any worse than anyone else my age — a little wrinkly and thin but they can chatter a mile a minute when necessary. Delete, delete, delete!
Happy birthday bro! – My brother is turning 92 this week. The number seems so old but if you meet him, he’s not. Still plays golf. There is some sort of anti-aging bubble over him. I must get one of those. If you are going to live to a ripe old age, this is the way to go. Healthy and active.
So how was your week?
