I STILL GOT IT?
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.
