Exposed – Trifextra Week 80

37 Comments


Grandpa’s chest rattled. “Sonny, I may be long in the tooth but the grey matter still works.”

Trifextra“Yeah, but you cheated…”

The cane with the dragon’s head whacked my ankle.

“Ouch.”

“Carry on.”

Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!
