MY FRIDAY AND SATURDAY:

 MY FRIDAY AND SATURDAY:
The photo above is where I live,
It's the house with the white door.
I reside on the second floor,
Who could ask for anything more.

Well Friday I managed the hairdresser's,
Long overdue I may say.
Had it cut short, and a different colour,
I'm pleased with it I can honestly say.
 Above is where I left most of my hair,
Made another appointment for next week.
It took a couple of hours yesterday.
A shorter time is what I seek.

Today I did a little "Retail Therapy"
Some new clothes was the order of the day.
Above is my local shopping area,
Today it was raining all day.
 
I asked a shop assistant,
Have you any shorter leg Jeans?
His reply shocked me when he replied,
"When you get to your age you shrink" do you know        
What I mean.?

I don't feel my age,
So, I have a few lines on my face.
But the way he spoke,
I didn't feel part of the human race.

Tomorrow I will get a cab,
And go to another shopping precint.
Hoping to get a pair of jeans,
On an old lady they should look very distinct...lol

  1. My thoughts are full of smart ass things I could have said back to that young whippersnapper but you probably took the high road.

  6. How cool to get a peek into your world. I always enjoy getting a glimpse into the lives of others. I've always heard that we "shrink" as we get older. I just wish my waistline and other parts of my body would shrink a bit--maybe lose a few pounds.

    So glad to see your A to Z posts back on the site.

    1. Thanks Lee for your comment and visit, much appreciated.
      I have lost a bit of weight.....in the wrong places. But I could have done without that sales assistant on about my age, I have a birthday in a month's time and don't want to be reminded.

  7. The last laugh is on that fellow, for he'll be old one day and discover that we are still human, no matter our age. He ought to be fired, until he learns respect.

    1. I guess you're right Beverly, but I just walked out of the shop speechless for once.
