Five More Words

As you may know, JB and LA from Waking Up on the Wrong Side of 50 initiated Five Word Friday which takes place on the first Friday of each month. It’s kind of neat that JB’s Friday is always the day before LA and me, so its like getting 2 or 3 scoops of ice cream for the price of 1 scoop.

Stephen Colbert

So it caught my attention when I saw a YouTube clip about a late night host (Stephen Colbert) who asks his star guests 15 questions which will reveal their true selves, and the star was Daniel Craig. 007 himself.

The question – and answer I was most interested in was ’Describe the rest of your life in five words.

You guessed it. I was hooked. And I wondered what my five would be. I mean we’re talking about the rest of your life. My life. I wondered if age had anything to do with the kind of answer one might give, considering that people of my ilk have been described as living in God’s Waiting Room. Haha

Before I tell you my five, I will relate what a few others have said.

First, Daniel Craig could not come up with just five, so we’ll move on. He’s only 54 so….

Keanu Reeves at 57 yrs said, ”I’m going to be hopeful.” That’s petty good I think.

Matthew Dicks, an American novelist is 51 yrs, and he youthfully replied, ”I plan to live forever.” Ah the optimism of the young!

Tom Hanks at 65 yrs. old poetically replied, ”A magnificent cavalcade of colour.”

Bruce Springsteen at 72 years said, ”Damn, what a (bleeping) ride,”

Jennifer Lawrence at 31 yrs, came up short saying, ”Hopefully not too short.’ (short one word.

Bradley Cooper, at 47 years was the funniest. Answering off the top of his head said, ”Oh man, that’s two, yes!”

So I guess enough dallying around. How do I describe the rest of my life in five words??

INTENT ON DOING KIND THINGS. *DISCLAIMER- I may change this afrter3 further thought or wine, but given The God’s Waiting Room status probably not a bad idea.

So my question to you, from here at North of 43 is: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE IN FIVE WORDS?

One is about 43 degrees latitude N. and longitude 80 W, The other almost equidistant south latitude and longitude 174 E. Two women, two minds, different personalities and experiences, choosing a life of meaning, continual growth and learning, at the same time negating ageist opinions of exactly what ‘an old lady’ should be.
