Love in 160 Bites, Part 2

(Last week on Sunday 160)

There was this old dude from Duluth
A bit grozzled and long in the tooth  
He looked in the mirror  
And shuddered in horror  
And thought: when did I lose all my youth?

**********
And now, this week's installment:
 

 

The old guy decided to travel

Before all of his parts came unraveled

So off to the Keys he went

And he got a small cottage to rent

Then to the nude beach he ambled. 



(To be continued)


Got something to say in 160 characters, including spaces? Visit Monkey Man to play Sunday 160.

Good for him! More power to him! And I'm going to steal grozzeled too!

I'm thinking "grozzled" must be a colloquialism. An internet search on the word finds it used in sentences meaning the same thing as I understand it to mean, but no formal definition of the word. I've used it all my life, as it was part of my dad's colorful vernacular. I think it's a great word.

Count me in among the people who are enchanted and amused by the word "grozzled".

And yes, it is crucial to visit nude beaches BEFORE all of one's parts become unraveled.
