STAYING ALIVE, STAYING ALIVE!

Fandango’s Provocative Question #129

I’m not sure if this week’s question is provocative or merely frustrating. I’m 74 with enough physical issues and problems for half a dozen folks my age — and you want to know how, what, or why I’d want to change myself?

Poof! I’ve changed myself! No? Maybe I should have said “Abracadabra.”

Sure I’d like to change. I’d like to be 25-years younger and 100 years healthier. Lacking that, I suppose I could try to be friendlier, though I’m not sure why. If I was more friendly, at whom would I aim my newly-acquired charm?

Since I don’t have the wherewithal to get younger — and if I did I’m sure I could sell that knowledge for an unimaginable amount of money thus solving two major problems with one “thing” — I’ll just settle for staying alive, staying alive.

Staying ALIVE!
