Facing Facts

Sigh: I Might Be That Old

Last night I was recycling shampoo/lotion bottles, dumping globs of expired creams in the bathroom sink under running water. Not dissolving fast enough, the globs looked gunky. So, I decided to stop the sink and run hot water over the remains.

Had I stayed at the sink, and kept an eye on the water level, though, I never would have known how fast water can overflow the sink and fill the pull out drawer below, and the containers it holds. Nor, would I have had the chance to dry the 3x5 carpet  outside overnight. Or, take an hour away from packing for our trip mopping up gallons of hot slippery water.

You see, what distracted me was opening a present from a friend – a lavender- colored mug proclaiming: “Keep Calm – You’re Not That Old.”

Apparently, I just might be. I remained calm, though . . . and kept baling.
