55 - The Legend

Parting his lips slightly, 
he curled the edges of his mouth 
and revealed his dazzling smile. 
He winked at his admirer, 
who, not surprisingly, 
winked back. 
Ever the charmer 
and always humble 
he thought to himself, 
“I’ve still got it,” 
when a voice from behind him said, 
“Quit worshipping yourself in the mirror, will ya.”

Janna said...

I tried this myself, but the person in the mirror kept asking me why I agreed to turn 41 last year.
I don't know how to break it to her that 42 is fast approaching.

Maybe she'll be happy if I shut her up with some chocolate pudding.

Oh, and thanks for another Friday 55.
Mine's here. :)
