A is for Aging

Gyad, aging. Very sensitive topic for a woman my age. I can't believe I'm 48. lol shorthanding
in my posts. I originally think of apples with the letter A so I tried to stay away from that connotion. Is that a word? Connotion...no, connotation. That's a word. I'll look it up later.
Apple seems so appropriate though because when it's what we remember when in what, Kindergarten? The apple with the little green caterpillar in the hole, the rotted out hole. Was it a worm or a caterpillar? I don't think caterpillars are apple eaters, but I never even saw a worm or caterpillar in an apple my entire life.

Go away apple, this is supposed to be aging. Getting old. Speaking of getting older, apples get older in media too. I remember Snow White and that apple being poisoned. The picture of the apple was less cartooney, more dark red and "seductive"! Slutty apple! So apples age in the media. Why is media on my mind? Old apples now have me thinking about the plate of fruit I decorated 2 weeks ago. Bananas, oranges, apples. Two weeks makes apples old. Aging and rotting go well together.

What about peeling apples and letting them dry out, putting decorations on them and creating shrunken voodoo heads? I just cleaned off my fruit platter! What a waste. The apples fell into the trashcan, taking along with it the film of old rotten syrup that built up on the bottom. Gross. Old apples!
