Daily Prompt: Never Say Wrinkle to an Old Person

Smile when you say wrinkle to me.  I hate growing old.  Growing older is fine but when you actually begin the aging process, it ain’t pretty.  The wrinkles are just a tiny part of all the other things that begin to fail inside and out of your soul’s shell.

I will never forget being repulsed as a child to see old men and women masks used for something to make you look scary or funny at Halloween time.  Keep laughing until it’s you.  Even as a child I thought this quite odd and offensive but obviously most don’t get it til they walk a mile in their wrinkles.

You don’t see wrinkles on television or movies with most now, their faces slackened as a corpse from overdosing on Botox.  I was watching some Community episodes on my DVD’s and realized that the actors once attractive faces looked ghastly by the third season.  You could see most using Botox with wrinkles and expression lines completely absent giving them a very different, unnatural appearance.

I understand face lifts or mini ones and some cosmetic surgery that really improve your looks or make you appear youthful but I don’t get any procedure that takes your identity away.  I will pick on someone right now.  Wendy Williams.  Not a fan but I respect her as a person because we actually agree on many things.  I first noticed her on “Dancing with the Stars” because I don’t watch much TV and had never heard of her before.  I actually thought she was a drag queen and was shocked at how plastic every part of her appeared from the broad shoulders and overly large breasts to the oddly slackened face causing me to believe that everything about her was artificial.

It’s great to use skin lotions, creams are not as effective I’m finding out.  Start when you’re young and keep it up.  It helps with fine lines plus helps protect your skin against pollution, depending on the quality of your product.  Having a beauty regime is fun and so nice to pamper yourself like that.  If you want a nip and tuck here or there, that’s your business but keep it real.  Laugh lines around the eyes and mouth are great and make you who you are.  Shows you’ve lived and enjoyed it.

I called this one “40 years hard time.”
