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!

  1. Love your take on the prompt.
    And of course the song !


  2. just a curious question: Are you wearing gloves outside? Can you handle your camera?


    • No gloves. Just very white hands. And no, I can’t manage my camera with gloves. I know some people do it, but I can’t. I can’t find the buttons. In the winter, I either wear gloves without fingers or stick my gloves in my pockets, and take them out when I’m done taking pictures.
