Getting Old, But Not Yet Dead

Welcome to Saturday Centus, where this week our Education Administrator, Jenny Matlock, who is a little out of sorts, has asked us to rise to the challenge of writing a piece using only 25 words, plus the prompt, "I'm not getting any younger." I'm not out of sorts today, but I am feeling a little goofy, so here it is!


Knees hurt
Body parts droop
Neck almost gone

I’m not getting any younger, but

When donning red shoes and lipstick
I scream “Marry me BonJovi”
With tweeners all night long!


So, hobble on over to Jenny's office by clicking on the logo below. You will see some excellent contributions by some of my classmates!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
