#100WCGU – Wk55 – Prompt: Photo prompt, add the words – 100 words – “Daaaarliiing!”

22 Aug


I know it’s your birthday. How many? (I thought you were much older.) I think you need a new outlook on life and a new outfit to go with it.

This was me my last birthday. No one took notice of the years, they spent too much time staring at my new look so, if you’re worried about the years, throw on a wig of any bright colour you want, add some non-matching sunnies, add some gaudy bling and, if they still aren’t impressed, poke out your tongue and tell them they should look so good at your age.

This is the prompt photo from the 100WCGU site.

      Thanks for the comment.

      The cat reminded me of the classic Australian comedy character, Dame Edna Everidge. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment.

      Barry Humphries had a knack for unusual characters poking fun at Australia and others. Dame Edna was a favourite of mine, as she (he) could always see the funny side of life and, as another character named Sir Les Patterson would say, Australyan kulcha. 🙂

    Daaaarling! All that advice – such a MAAAHvelous way of dealing with your deficiencies, and I must admire your spirit under the circumstances!

    Very funny – good job!

      Thanks for the comment.

      I think the cat had the correct idea. Distraction then defiance in the face of stares. Aren’t we all said to be as young as we feel even if our bodies sometimes remind us otherwise? 🙂
