Adult disguise…

In Other Words
prompt

“Another belief of mine:
that everyone else my age is an adult,
whereas I am in disguise.”
Margaret Atwood

aroni-738287_640I know that a person my age is an adult.  I cannot deny I am an adult.  I look like an adult and for the most part, I behave like an adult.  I have  worked forever and I am now semi-retired so that makes me old and old people are adults.

I am a grown-up because I am bigger than a child, take care of myself, own my apartment, have a job, pay bills, grumble and complain, have aches and pains.  But I have a hard time taking all that information and equating it with being an adult.

I think I am a much younger person whose body has sped past her true heart and mind. I resemble an adult but really I am a quasi-adult and I am quite happy with that.  I would be even happier if the body part would slow down a bit…my disguise is beginning to look somewhat worn.

    1. I can’t say I like the way this body is aging but I am grateful that it is doing it as well as it is. Being grown up is over-rated.

  1. IMO, growing up does not have to mean growing old. I am a very energetic 70 year old. So, my body is a little high maintenance at this age, but it stills works. Rock On!

      1. Ha ha ha.
        I saw that little girl in another picture I wanted to snap up but too many have already been in circulation. What a cutey, but that’s how I feel. ❤ ❤ The way she look is how I feel.
