Meat in the Blender!

Yesterday, I could chew saw blades and rocks;

Today, I can't even bend down to pull up my socks!

Yesterday, I could walk just fine;

Today..., bad example, never mind!

Yesterday, I could think forever and a while;

Today, I think I'm going suddenly senile!

You may be wondering, "What could change in just 1 day?

Well, it's my 50th birthday is what I'll say!

It's meat in the blender from this day on

The bloom of my youth is most definitely gone!
