Dear children at the lakefront this weekend -
As traumatic as it was to see a woman
my age and condition
in a bathing suit,
I feel the immediate damage to your psyches
be mitigated by learning two important life lessons:
1 - this is what non-estrogenized skin looks like;
it happens to all women
(even to those who swore
it wouldn't happen to them)
2 - gravity always wins.
Scary, but true!
