Do You See What I See ?

Updated on November 24, 2010

My Eyes Can Barely Open

It is too early in the morning

I have to get up and dressed

There are some things that can't wait

I am seeing the reflection

That is way to revealing

Not at all gratifying

In some ways sad

I can't see my eyes

They are all blood shot

Why don't they open wide any more ?

I can't believe the wrinkles I see

My wife says there not just crows feet

There more like a fleet of crows camping out

Maybe as the day goes on they will fade

I have a bare spot where my hair should be

I know a little combing goes a long way

I feel better

Not really

Are those nose hairs ?

Where did they come from

They look like little trees

I will brush my teeth

At least I have a good smile

I don't remember missing that tooth in the back

It must of been a couple of years ago when I had a tooth out

No, that was the one on the other side

Oh, I have seen enough just close your mouth and brush

Whats with the hair

Maybe if I wet it it will stay down in back

I don't have much left how could it be out of place

I have hair growing out of my ears now

Come on you got to be joking?

I never seen it before

What is that on my neck

Is that extra skin ?

Where did that come from ?

What am I looking at

Is that a double chin

I never had real bad acne thank God for that

Whats with this scar across my cheek

How did I get that ?

My eyebrows are even out of control

I have a few hairs that look like lobster tennicles

Hold still while I cut that

Careful it would be real stupid to jab myself in the eye

Oh I don't believe it

Are bathroom mirror has a crack in it

Honey can you hear me ?

Are you talking to yourself again ?

What? What is it ?

Is everything alright ?

Are mirror has a crack in it

You never noticed that before

Remember when they put it in

They never put it in right

It was crooked

You tried to move it and make it straight

And it cracked

You said no one would notice it

Was there anything else?

I thought you cut yourself shaving like you always do

No I didn't cut myself shaving

You know we can't be late for your doctors appointment

It is your yearly physical

You forgot last year to go

I tell you I am fine

I am still young and healthy as ever

In your dreams

AHHH I just cut myself

I told you would

Don't worry its only a little cut

I don't know why you have to shave

It is not like your doctor is going to care if you shaved or not

Ever since you got the woman doctor

You act you have to look your best

Did you put your cologne on ?

Just a little bit

Are you wearing this ?

This is your dress shirt

I just grabbed the first shirt I seen

O.k. I am ready

You drop me off at the supermarket

What took you so long in the bathroom ?

Nothing I was just concerned about the mirror

The mirrors fine

I thought your shoulder was bothering you

Nope its fine now

Don't forget to tell the doctor

You had trouble going to the bathroom last week

Nope not me

Thats what they all say

I am a picture of good health

When your doctor says your fine I will believe it then

Don't complain a week from now about aches and pains

I don't want to hear it

I don't complain

You better not

I am only going because you want me to go

You know you are not the same guy I married 10 years ago


I'm cutier than ever

Love ya don't forget to tell the doctor about your toe nail that doesn't grow

The one you dropped the hammer on trying to fix the mirror

Love you too

      Ha, we all feel this way as time goes on, why can't going older have just a touch of class, but now those crows feet grow down your arms and legs, and now I don't know who that is in the mirror? Could that really be me? I feel like a twenty year old inside my head but my body is the scariest sight I have ever seen. Love your hub and i rate it up, and thank you for your awesome comment on my hub. Always your old friend and fan...darski
