WALK A MILE IN THEIR DIAPERS

OK…
So today’s post isn’t all holiday festive…
It's about life…
And its decline.
I’ve been visiting someone near to me…
Who’s in a nursing home.
It’s a sobering place for sure…
And as I walk out of there everyday…
I get a better perspective on life because…
OK, I haven’t found an agent yet…
Let alone be published…
But!
I can still walk!
Trust me…
Never mind worrying about losing your mind when you get older…
Worry about losing your ability to walk…
Not only so you can escape from nursing homes…
Because trust me…
If you still have your mind, you’ll want to…
But more important…
You need to walk to take your own rear end to the bathroom
Because not being able to walk is the criteria…
For who gets escorted to the bathroom…
And who gets stuck wearing adult diapers.
I’m not making fun of residents in a nursing home…
All I’m saying is…
Never stop exercising!
As I’m sitting and writing now
I'm doing butt squinches.
And if you sit on yours
As much as I do mine
You should be too.

Always, Em-Musing
P.S. So, this is the post I was too afraid to post
        last Friday. Distasteful or no biggie?

Well, I think this is a timely post: to count our blessings this time of year. :)

Don't think you have anything to worry about.

Thanks. It's a rough time of year for me, but my mind always goes for something to lighten the burden, and always it's finding a silly or humorous angle.

I'm working out like crazy and it still isn't stopping the clock. I'll try harder next year.

Nah, no distaste here. I laughed my Depends off! Errr....

I vote no biggie. I didn't feel there was anything wrong with this post, I actually found it refreshing. We forget how much we actually take for granted until you're in a situation that shows you what you should work on.

I did butt crunches as I was reading this! Thanks for reminding me to stay in shape!

Nice image, This is really interesting take on the concept. I never thought of it that way. I came across this site recently which I think it will be a great use of new ideas and informations about adult diapers. Thanks a lot....

Why were you afraid to post this? It's so true!
