I turn 38 this week yet for some reason I have already been thinking that I was 38 for a year now. I rarely feel my actual age (or even act it) and I like this fluid relationship I have with age. It allows me to avoid the “growing older” drama that society and the media tries so very hard to draw us into. I can find my own dramas all by myself so this is one area of my life where I don’t need any help.
So in honour of this occasion I thought I would try to write something about myself in 38 words. I think it only took me 38 seconds to do it so don’t get your hopes up. The point is, I achieved my goal: 38 words.
(for fellow pedants out there, the title is included in the word count and I count “that’s” as one word. What am I revealing about myself?)
My Life in Thirty Eight Words
Little feet, little toes
Bigger boobs and pointy nose.
That’s the way the outside goes.
Fertile soil for a brain,
Plant the seeds, let it rain.
That’s how I come alive again.
ok, you can’t google images for bigger boobs and planting seeds (well, you can but I wouldn’t) and I’m not very good at drawing so here is a Monet that caught my eye.
