Merry Christmas To My Female Friends

If I were ol’ Santa, you know what I’d do
I’d dump silly gifts that are given to you
And deliver some things just inside your front door
Things you have lost, but treasured before.

I’d give you back all your maidenly vigor,
And to go along with it, a neat tiny figure.
Then restore the old color that once graced your hair
Before rinses and bleaches took residence there.

I’d bring back the shape with which you were gifted
So things now suspended need not be uplifted.
I’d draw in your tummy and smooth down your back
Till you’d be a dream in those tight fitting slacks.

I’d remove all your wrinkles and leave only one chin
So you wouldn’t spend hours rubbing grease on your skin.
You’d never have flashes or queer dizzy spells,
And you wouldn’t hear noises like ringing of bells.

No sore aching feet and no corns on your toes,
No searching for spectacles when they’re right on your nose.

Not a shot would you take in your arm, hip or fanny,
From a doctor who thinks you’re a nervous old granny.
You’d never have a headache, so no pills would you take.
And no heating pad needed since your muscles won’t ache.

Yes, if I were Santa, you’d never look stupid,
You’d be a cute little chick with the romance of a cupid.
I’d give a lift to your heart when those wolves start to whistle,
And the joys of your heart would be light as a thistle.

But alas! I’m not Santa. I’m simply just me,
The matronest of matrons you ever did see.
I wish I could tell you all the symptoms I’ve got,
But I’m due at my doctor’s for an estrogen shot.

Even though we’ve grown older, this wish is sincere,
Merry Christmas to you and a Happy New Year.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

      As you can see, this was posted over 3-years-ago and from the appearance, it was undoubtedly an email that I posted, and no doubt just as it came to me. I actually don’t remember it. I think it was part of a merge of an old MSN blog that used to have jsut for fun and friends.
      I have been blogging for going on 10-years, have 5 blogs of my own and participate in several blogging groups. I always give credit and link back to the author if I know who it is, but as with many emails, there often is no source which was undoubtedly the case here and why it was marked as author unknown. I certainly would have been happy to give you credit, had I known.
      But I sense your unhappiness with it being posted or that you somehow feel I did this on purpose, so I will remove this post.
      I certainly didn’t mean to upset anyone and I never use people’s stuff without giving them credit.
      Sorry of any inconvenience or stress that might have caused you!
