Oh, my sweet peeps, I've been struggling to keep my blog head up and I finally decided I JUST NEED TO JUMP BACK IN. One of my pleasure in past years was the A to Z Challenge...what a great place to start.
For my theme, I have chosen If You Do This, You May Be a Geezer. You know who you are...or do you?
Now, you know that I am young at heart -- aren't we all? In fact, maybe too much so, because I'm finding myself oddly amazed at the passage of time. How can I be so out of touch with...me?
For instance, I received a certificate for twenty years of service for a certain philantropic organization. Twenty years I've been at it with them? Lord, I would have said six. And then, the epiphany occurred...the self-correcting, deep dark truth set in: yep...it's been twenty years.
It's not just me, I'm noticing it all the time. Geezers that walk among you don't know they're geezers. It's like the movie, The Sixth Sense. But I see old people...and they don't know they're old.
"Hmmm...," I thought, "this might be a great service to humanity if I carefully and kindly listed some of the various symptoms of geezerhood, lest the general public might miss key signs."
I owe it to humanity, dag nabbit. Dat's all I'm saying for now.
Join me on April 1 for your own personal A to Z Geezer-Check, Monday through Saturday (hey, a person of my advanced years has to rest a day).
