the odd pain in the knee
constantly feeling the need to pee
(especially when I laugh or sneeze!)
but I can clearly see
the alternative, I'd rather not be.
So, okay, the Bag Lady is not much of a poet, but she did survive another birthday.
Edited to add: Thanks, Hilary, for this:
Glad my terrible poetry made you smile!
Don't mention knees to me.

You're only as old as you feel! I'm 36 but we replaced mattresses yesterday at the hotel I work for, 110 beds total! I feel really old today! :) But come Christmas morning I'm going to be 10 again! :)
Oops, sorry, Mary Anne! :)
Book Nut - After changing 110 mattresses, anyone would feel a little old!
Gail - thanks!
Good one, Bag Lady. I feel the same way and I'm a dewy-eyed young thing of 52.
I hope you had a most wonderful day :)
Leah - I could have gone on and on, but my stamina isn't what it used to be, either! :)
Geo - thanks! It was a lovely birthday.
Happy Birthday!!!!! LOVE your Ode to Old. You are a very, very clever. xxoo
Awww, thanks, Cheryl! :)
I wish you many happy returns of the day, Bag Lady!
Have a beautiful day.
Awww Happy Birthday, you silly, young thing! :)
Hilary - thanks!
Happy Birthday!!! And I pee when I cough or laugh too:) Weak pelvic floor unite!
Well done you old bag! :)
Each of those pains has been earned, just like the wrinkles, um, laugh lines!
I could have written that and I'm a few weeks shy of 45.
Let's just pretend we are young, hearty and hale, shall we?
Charlotte - I hate to break it to you - it just gets worse as you get older! :)
Reb - Yes, I've earned them all (and a few that I didn't really have to work all that hard for!)
kcinnova - I'm all for the pretending! Might even convince myself, for a little while, at least!
Thanks, JC! :)
Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas
Congrats on your POTW!!
Well Bag Lady, let me put it this way. It could be worse. A lot worse. At least you're still there.
Happy birthday and merry Christmas from me too!
slommler - thanks so much! Merry Christmas to you, too.
gaelikka - yes, I suppose that is true! Thanks, and Merry Christmas!
You are only as old
As you want to be
Act sixteen if you want
And it may make you feel seventy.
Happy Birthday with a poem, boy are you ever young!
congrats on the POTW
Out on the prairie - Thanks! Some days I still feel 16.... most days, not.
Reb - thanks, sis!
Isn't it an example of multi-tasking when you sneeze and pee at the same time?
Linda - YES! LOL(and thanks for making me multi-task.....)
A belated happy birthday wish from one of your elders. Hang onto that sense of humor. It's the only thing that's got a chance of gettin' better. :-\
And congratulations on your POTW!
Where have I been???? I just noticed you are a POTW so I had to come back to tell you congratulations! Well deserved, my friend.
June - thanks! The sense of humour is sometimes the only asset I have!
Cheryl - thank you!
