Did You Think I Was Old? Not Me!

Published January 5, 2018 by Nan Mykel

When did an old person ever collect puppets for amusement and magic?

When did an old person get so self-absorbed playing that her son disowned her? (Hope I’m smarter than that when I get old).

When did an old person collect pieces of lightning and pretend they were dog turds? (I should hope not).

When did an old person ever sneak in the cookie jar and empty it? (Surely not!)

When did an old person pout because it was raining, and sing Rain Rain Go Away?

When did an old person ever hang up their stocking on Christmas Eve? And GET something!

When did an old person ever go chasing rainbows?

When did an old person ever prefer Raggedy Ann to Barbie?

When did an old person avoid looking in the mirror?

When did an old person who wouldn’t look in he mirror say “I’m not old?”                                               SEE?  I’m NOT!
