Nobody every said growing old was easy. Every waking day there is another part of your body that starts to get crickety. Just getting out of bed, you start to sound like a bowl of rice krispie treats.... snap, crackle and pop. I think my knees are about the worst part- thanks to playing basketball.
I have talked to the doctor.... really he says, that is normal... welcome to a normal part of aging. Thanks Doc! I don't need you poking fun at me getting older. Anyhow, sound with no pain is fine.
The ol' body doesn't seem to want to stop there either... have you ever noticed how older people have no control over certain bodily functions? Have you ever been behind that elderly person that toots every time they take a step? Or even better, when out in public and you HAVE to do the unthinkable and use a public potty....*GAG* The elderly I swear they can't pee without letting that toot slip out first. I used to think it was funny.
Not No More....
Sometimes at work I actually get to sit behind my desk for a while... I am not going to lie... When I do get up to do something, I am stiff and the crickety parts start singing their song. So, here I go snap, cracklin' and popping all the way to the restroom. It was rather chilly in the office and my knees were pretty stiff, then add those wonderful heels. I finally get into the stall and turn to sit, I strained enough trying to cop a squat... out came that old lady fart. Thank GOODNESS nobody else was in there at the time.
I am getting old.
But not to old that I can't remember to flush the toilet now every time before I cop a squat..... the flushing noise drowns everything out...
