It comes to us all, and one of my worst nightmares is having my teeth smile at me from a jar!
Thanks Charli. Good prompt this week. I’m on it!
May 18, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a wise story. It can be about wisdom, expressing wisdom or advice for turning 50! It can be a wise-cracking story, too. Go where wisdom leads you.
I was brought up to respect my elders.
In fact, I have always got on better with those some twenty or thirty years older than me, and my first little job at 12 was working with then pensioners who I probably drove mad with my jokes and pop music!
One of the best bits of advice I ever received was from the supervisor I worked with 1980 – 1981. As he was breaking into her car having locked her keys inside, she nudged me, grinned and said
‘Keep him. He’s useful.’
So I did. That was 28 years ago, and I’ve never regretted it.
