Beyond the Books is a weekly feature hosted right here at KBK. Beyond the Books is a weekly writing prompt where I throw out a topic (mostly non-bookish), and you guys blog about it. Come back here and share the link to your blog post, and we all have fun learning about each other. For more information and future topics click here.

 

This week I want to talk about me. Well, laugh! I always want to talk about me. I want you to imagine me going through all of these signs of getting older AND I want you to realize it will someday happen to you, so don’t laugh too hard.

Signs I am getting older:

I can’t see shit without my glasses anymore.

I can still drop it like it’s hot, but I can’t always get it back up.

I have laugh lines even though I am not smiling and cellulite is my constant companion.

I care less about what people think about me.

I like myself a lot more than I did when I was younger. I feel like I am more comfortable in my own skin. That’s the best thing I’ve found about getting older.
