Daily Prompt: New Wrinkles

New Wrinkles

You wake up one day and realize you’re ten years older than you were the previous night. Beyond the initial shock, how does this development change your life plans?

day careSeriously, you expect me to get over the initial shock?…  Do you know what 10 years added to my life would mean? It would mean I was receiving a free bus pass, and just four years away from my, three score years and ten, where every day after is a bonus… And probably being put on a bus once a week to the Day Care Centre singing along to the good old favourites of Britney ‘One more time’ Spears and remembering when midriffs were covered and the volume control on the stereo also turned to the left.

And Aunty Acid was now my new best friend.  …. Please not 10 years forward… ten years back that way I could undo a couple of mistakes I’ve made in life and have those extra 10 years with my loving husband and son.

Plus, I wouldn’t scare myself shitless when I looked in the mirror and saw those added wrinkles…. I could dance around the room, celebrating that wrinkles had magically vanished overnight. 😀

Mind you with old age come the riches. 😀
