It’s a “Whack-A-Mole” LIFE…
I often wonder as I look at my skin where the next age spot will pop up. Pop! Pop! Pop! One day, skin-colored skin, the next day: Age spot! What’s the opposite of *Poof*? I know! *Foop*!
Like the one on my upper forehead! It came from out of nowhere! *FOOP*!
DON’T LOOK NEXT TIME YOU SEE ME, I WILL KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
Where did that age spot come from? Was it from…
…The day at the beach when I almost drowned my sister? She lived, lucky me! And I say that because I like having her around, not because of the whole I-didn’t-have-to-go-to-jail thing.
…One of those countless May Day performances in elementary school? Because as everyone knows, May Day is lei day in Hawaii…
…The time my seven-or-so-year-old self stood on top of my friend Holly’s rabbit hutch so I could sing my favorite song “Let It Snow” in the middle of summer in Hawaii to get my first crush Kevin Gull’s attention as he played in the neighborhood park just over the fence? And yes, I got his attention. He looked at me very strangely. I have no idea why…
Regardless of when that age spot – MEMORY spot – was made, or the one on my left cheek, or the one on the back my right hand, and all the future ones that are coming next and I have no idea where they will make their appearance, that is how I’ve chosen to view them: as the lovely things they are. Memory spots.
Reminders of good times past and harbingers of the good times to come, because here is my plan: If I can make my face one solid age spot, then nobody will notice a thing! I’ll just be a little tanner, is all…Therefore, I shall continue to venture out into the world as soon as I get over this cold, and ADD to my collection!
“Oh, the weather outside is frightful!
But the fiiirreee is soooo delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”
