Memories



Parody of the tune I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now?

I wonder who's reached 80 now?
I wonder who remembers how?
To find the keys, their glasses and cheese
To keep their looks
To read good books
To wash behind their knees?

If I could remember the tune, I could probably make the poem match it better, no?

It sort of reminds me of my 30th birthday, when she asked chipperly, "And how old are YOU now?"

"Thirty."

Surprised silence.

"That's not right! You CAN'T be 30! I'm 30!"

What a way to start your day, discovering that you've been your mother's twin all your life and didn't know it. I suppose I should have caught on when I went to work at Piggly Wiggly and an IBM'er came through, read my name tag, and cheerfully inquired, "Dale's wife?"

I think I was 16 or so at the time...
