I STILL GOT IT?


I STILL GOT IT?
 
I woke up this morning before Mrs. Cranky.  I turned on the TV, propped myself up, and grabbed my laptop to catch up with my blog friends.  Mrs. C woke up and glancing at me while still just semi-conscious says, “From this angle, with your hair messed up, you look like Ben Franklin.”

Now I am a great admirer of Ben Franklin.  He discovered electricity, he helped write the Declaration of Independence, he invented bifocals, and he contracted several venereal diseases while an ambassador to France.  Still, I’ve never considered Mr. Franklin to be a handsome man.  I, in contrast, still look exactly as I did in my High School yearbook.  At least I thought I did.

“Ben Franklin?  Thanks a lot.  What, you wake up and the first thing you do is tell me I look like a frumpy disheveled old man?”

“You are a frumpy disheveled old man.”

“Get the frig out.  I still got it!”

“Yes Dear (dripping with sarcasm) you got it for sure.”

I dragged myself out of bed, limped into the bathroom, and gazed at myself in the mirror.  What a relief when once again the reflection was that of a handsome seventeen year old stud.
 
 
I don’t know what Mrs. C is seeing.

  3. I think it's great that you have another day to have it. That's always the high point of my day is that I have another one. Oma Linda

  4. I, too, look much better in my mind's eye than in that lying image I see in the mirror. My hubby? He looks kinda like a shiny-topped Einstein when he gets up in the morning.

  6. Loved it! It's all about how we see ourselves, and I'm betting Mrs.C is mighty fond of ol' Ben :-)

  9. The resemblance is striking. I am shocked that counterfeiters don't ask you to sit for portraits. Surprised that managers of Ben Franklin stores are not dueling each other for the chance to offer you work parading in front of their establishments wearing a sandwich board. And befuddled by the fact that even though you had awakened, you were not early to rise. You'll never get healthy, wealthy, and wise that way.

  12. Perception is its own form of reality, I say. You go ahead and keep seeing the 17-year old football player.

  13. I have to agree with the previous posters - you look like Benjamin Franklin's hotter twin brother.

    I want to make jokes about the venereal diseases, but I'll refrain.
