Reasons Aging Is Like the Saggy Baggy Elephant

Humor - General

Introduction:As I have started aging, I have noticed that my own skin is not fitting me as well as it once did. When I was a child, my mother would read a Little Golden Book story to me about a Saggy Baggy Elephant. This poor little elephant was having a good time in life until he was told that his skin did not fit. This was a moment of panic for him.

    Knees

    Last summer, I happened to look down at my knees and I was shocked. First of all, I have to mention that I am glad that I can still see my knees after aging. The skin around them was all loose and wrinkly looking. It was kind of gross so I decided to wear Capri pants the rest of the season. They are nice and stylish and they cover all of that aging Saggy Baggy Elephant knee skin. They do not help with hot flashes, though. It is hard to win at this game when you begin getting older.

    Elbows

    As I was getting ready to go to a parade last summer, I looked in the mirror to check out my appearance in my new t-shirt and Capris. There was something terribly sick and wrong in the middle of my arms. Where were my elbows? There was rippling waves of skin flapping over my elbow joints. It was too late to do anything because I had to go. I noticed that if I kept my arms bent at the elbows, things appeared to be much better. I did not put my arms down to my side the rest of the day. Now I opt for three quarter length sleeves. Once again, it does not help with hot flashes.

    Neck

    There was a time when I thought that having a long neck was a nice feature. That was before I started aging. My neck used to look like the long smooth elegant one of a giraffe. Now it looks like the rugged neck of the Saggy Baggy Elephant. I was so good at putting moisturizers and wrinkle creams on my face, but I forgot about my once beautiful neck. I wish turtle necks were in style all year long. I keep my hair long because it can cover all sorts of things. Most people my age have short hair and short necks.

    Jowls

    As I looked at some photos of myself the other day, I was surprised to see my jowls drooping down along with a bit of a double chin. I think I might invest in the Neckline Slimmer which is an As Seen On TV item. It is supposed to show dramatic results in only two minutes of use a day. I am not sure if will help to tighten the area, or if gravity will win as I start getting older. There are also exercises advertised that are supposed to take off ten years in fifteen minutes. This all takes money, but it has to be much less than plastic surgery. I notice that if I keep smiling, it does not look so bad. That means I have to bleach my teeth.

    Rear End and Other Body Parts

    There are some body parts that are just too embarrassing to talk about when you start aging. Mine are not hanging out in the right places anymore. As a popular commercial states, they have fallen and they can't get up. I am grateful that those parts can be covered. There are some tricks to get all of that aging Saggy Baggy Elephant like skin pushed back to where it needs to be. Thank heavens for push up bras and tight underwear.




Final Thoughts

The Saggy Baggy elephant eventually found beautiful elephants just like him. They danced together and found life to be fun and exciting. That is what we all need to do as we begin aging.
