SOC Sunday: Untitled Unedited

As much as I love a prompted brain dump, this weeks 5 minute stream of consciousness is a FREE WRITE because it's Jana's birthday and she says so. Without a prompt I think I write/type faster so benprepared for more typos than usual and perhaps more words...

5 minutes ready set go...

My birthday is this week also and I am happy to report that I will be 42 years old. NOT 43. I realized recently that I had been saying that I was 42 or would be 43, so it’s kinda like I got an extra year or at least half of one. I like that.

But what is it about a pending birthday at this age that things start to tell your age? For instance I popped my knee getting off of the toilet yesterday. I swear I wasn’t there long. I attempted to get up and said, “OH!!” so I had to stay a minute longer and reflect on my 43rd birthday and then I remembered I would be 42. 


I-ve had 20/20 close up vision (can’t think of the proper word), forever. Now all of a sudden I’m squinting at everything. I’m doing what my mom used to do when I would show her something close to her face and she would about fall out of the chair with a scowl that meant back up. 

I’ve recently learned from blogger Gina, that could increase the font on my cellphone. Thanks Gina. I’m not due for an eye exam for a couple of months, so jumbo font will do and I hope nothing extreme has happened where I have to get bifocals.

Pencils up! Remember that from the #2 pencil test taking? With my brain dumps I do complete my sentence because the timer never goes off at a period. 

Does it ever take you more that 5 minutes just to think of a title? Hmmm, I’m there now.
