More on the saga of my bruised face!
A friend texted me and suggested,
“The fun part of getting
two black eyes,
is making up some wild,
harebrained event that caused them.
Sky diving accident?
Or when they turn yellow…
trying out for a clown part
in an adaptation of a Stephen King novel.”
I think I could pull off a clown part
in a Stephen King adaptation, don’t you?
I don’t need to wait til they turn yellow…
just match the magenta with my lipstick,
clothing, and earrings,
and (as Derrick suggested)
EMBRACE THE BRUISES!!
If you’re just tuning in to this messed up face saga,
I need you to know that I got into a wrestling match
with a tiger – and I won. The tiger
ran off into the woods, never to attack a human again!
And if you believe that, you need to buy my latest novel…
published by Porterhouse … available on your next steak.
If you can’t embrace sunglasses
and hide the damage,
then ya gotta smile and bare it,
And while we’re at it, I have another story to tell you:
You know I’d not be likely to buy a case of beer –
but good wine, now that’s another story!
Now if you think I have any flawless dance moves left in me,
I have a glass of Kool-Aid to sell you.
I have waaaay too many birthday stories to tell –
and a whole lot of receipts for the Kool-Aid I’ve sold.
But, we’ve decided flying is a better way to go
instead of driving these days.
Driving requires sitting next to one another
and trying to talk to each other.
After nearly 60 years of marriage,
what’s left to talk about?
On a plane, if you’re lucky,
you get the center aisle –
and somebody new to talk to.
Seeing better was a perk of younger years.
Hearing better is a perk of aging…
but it takes a set of $4000 aids to do it.
As the birthdays pile up,
we have to be sure we have our bifocals
and our hearing aids
before we leave home.
Next it’ll be our walking stick
or a walker!!
Try not to lose your glasses
or your car keys –
That’s one of the problems
we multi-birthday folks have.
But that’s not as bad a losing
Did I tell you the story about
how I got these black eyes?
Oh, I did?
It was back on the blog called
EMBRACE HARD HEADS –
That’s a story for another day.
Do you have a story to tell?
Come on, be a sport…
See ya tomorrow (God willing)
