Daily Prompt: New Wrinkles on my Old Life


When I first saw The Daily Post I was thinking “Oh no he didn’t!”

The truth is, that is exactly what happened to me.

One day I was young and attractive, men buzzing around me like bees to the flowers and the next thing I knew I woke up to the harsh reality that I was old.  Not older but an actual Senior citizen.  In between I was too busy working non-stop instead of trying to find another husband like most of my friends and never had time to worry about such nonsense.  My bad!

One day it was smiles and “hey sweet thing” and the next was “you look good for your age” and overhearing “I bet she used to be pretty.”

This is my life now.  Thank God I am not as vain as I thought I was and know I have lots of stuff to do in this life beside look cute.  I am so glad that I went back to school and got a decent job and was able to take care of my family and not be desperate to find someone else to get divorced from in another few years.  Many women don’t believe in themselves enough to know they are totally able to do the same thing.  All you have to do is believe and go for it!
