Shower Thoughts

… Oh, good, hot water tonight …

One night, I will take my last shower
Not tonight — probably not
It’s kind of weird to think about

Will I be old and tired
And feel like I’m about to die?

Or will it sneak up on me and
… Almost out of shampoo …
I won’t know I had my last ever shower

I wonder how old I was for my first one?
That old house only had bathtubs, no showers

I’m 52 years old
It happens
People slip or have heart attacks or

… I guess I’m done …

It appears I survived

This time

  1. Lol! For Pete’s sake, you’re only just barely into your 50s! That is almost criminally young in my book! You remind me, though, of when I tried on my brown fur-hooded parka. I was very pleased with it, until the strange thought came that it might be the last coat I’ll ever buy, that it might last me the rest of my life. It was a horrifying moment. I immediately applied chocolate.
