Daily Prompt: Wrinkle

Our family was not really into wrinkles. It was more white hair and aching joints, the skin remained smooth. I get remarks that I have no folds of skin in the wrong places, usually from people that already have got their creases where they did not really want them.

Five ages of man, Wyss Garden Centre, Zuchwil

In our local garden centre they have sculptures representing the seven ages of man. This is more into my line of things. I have gone through all of them up to stage 5-6. Stage 5 is the part where you have the walker. Mine is caused by a broken leg at the moment, but under normal circumstances it would be my walking stick for support. I suppose I am now approaching stage 6. Mr. Swiss is almost there. Today I was thinking about going for an outing with my wheelchair, but due to the fact that I had a wonderful relaxing golden oldie sleep after lunch, I never got there.

Wrinkles are superficial so what’s the problem. If you are too tired and your limbs and joints no longer connect, then  you have real problems. There are various film actors that are showing signs of age on their faces, but they are now interesting.

So there we have it. I have immaculate features, not a crease or a wrinkle, just a few laugh creases bordering the eyes, but I belong to the ministry of funny walks. I have a left foot that tends to point outwards and at the moment I even have a limp, but not one wrinkle. Perhaps limps are also interesting. So enjoy your wrinkles if you have them, and they do not hurt.

The last guy in the ages of man is even crawling and for some reason has a pig. I am not sure about that one, but I do tend to crawl out of bed in the morning, although without a pig.

  1. Garry looks young, but he complains old. Genetics has a lot to do with the wrinkly part, but as Billy Crystal always says “It’s not how old you are. It’s how old you look!” The last 10 years has taken a real toll on me. I didn’t look my age, but I sure do now. I’m not crawling yet, but I’m getting there!!

    • People never believed my age saying I look so young. Today they don’t say that any more, I wonder why. I don’t know how to figure the genetics. My dad was over 100 years old when his time came (as he always said) and my mum was the same age as me and had her second heart attack. My heart seems to be Ok, one of the few things that still functions, but everything else is slowly going downwards. If i fall, I have to crawl to find something to support me to stand up again. Oh, isn’t life wonderful.
