Trade in time

[This has been borrowed from
It clearly illustrates my current how am doing!]

"If my body were a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model.

I have lumps and dents and scratches in my finish, and my paint job is getting a little dull - but that's not the worst of it.

My fenders are too wide to be considered stylish. They were once as sleek as a little MG - now they look more like my mom's old Buick.

My seat cushions have split open at the seams. My seats are sagging.

Seat belts? I gave up all belts when Ben & Jerry's opened a shop in my neighbourhood.

Air bags? Forget it. The only bags I have these days are under my eyes. Not counting the saddlebags, of course.

I have soooooo many miles on my odometer. Sure, I've been many places and seen many things, but when is the last time an appraiser factored life experiences against depreciation?

My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close.

My reaction is not as graceful as it once was.

I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed.

I'm burning fuel at an inefficient rate.

But here's the worst of it: almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter, I leak fluids.

I'm so ready for a trade in!

Anyone know where I can get a good deal?"

All things considered, am not really doing as bad as that!

If only I could make my body burn fuel at an inefficient rate... it's become an expert at storing for the long winter.

Roberta said...

I love your pictures!

aadil said...

Margaret, your plea has touched my heart. I am willing to donate my annual excess fat to your heart-warming cause. Get ready for the transfusion - prepare some paper cups and thick straws. ;D

Fitèna said...

This is funny! And why does it seem like everyone on the blogosphere things that their, erm, fenders are a bit too big? I feel that way, too.

Fitèna said...

Welcome! Bienvenue! fringes, stalkin me? :-)
Thank you and I liked yours too!

Waz grrrrrr! lol! Sure, will do it I do't promise it'll be in the coming days though! But I'll do it!

Waz, who else apart me?! Me and whoever aught to meet and discuss how to go about this!
Definitely the songs and more so the linking!

kim, I guess its got to do with the perpetual insatisfaction of the human kind!

aadil said...

There was supposed to be a get-together last Saturday and since I was too busy for the preparations I ask Lash to do it. Unfortunately, turned out he was busy too.

Worry not as I will organize a local bloggers' meeting after Ramadan. It's an old project of mine.

Fitèna said...
