In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Forever Young.”
If there were a real Fountain of Youth, would you drink the water?
The last time I drank from the fountain of youth, I was scolded severely, by my parents and the priest who made me go to confession.
I know there is no fountain of youth and If there was one, I would wait six months to see the results from those who did drink the water.
I do not want to live forever. However, I want to live long enough to wake one morning hearing my great grand-children asking. Is he alive?
Or witness one my children change my Depends. I want to experience the cycle of life since I changed them when they were babies.
Although both adult children have expressed how they will manage their funds to hire a nurse to take care of the depends duties. 🙂
