Saturday Centus - If I die young

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to another Saturday Centus brought to by, well myself, and of course Miss Jenny from "off on my tangent" and if you want to play along with us (you'll really love it I know) even if we can't use photos today, and just the word "die" is like an ugly word and not on my favorite word list like the exquisite word, young (yet, how young is young?)

So our prompt for today is
If I Die Young, just like that, with a total of 150 words thrown in too, really? 150? Wow....can't do that many today!

Here goes my reply

       If I die young, really? Well, that isn’t going to happen. I’m already past young, as far as birthdays go. Yet, on the other side of reason, where logic gets you from A to B and back again, I’ll borrow some wisdom from my best friend, Imagination, who sometimes really needs to be shaken up a bit, but always answers.

    Together we are irresistible, with our arms slung about each other; we’ll blanket the streets like drunken buddies staggering from one amusing thing to another. All in the name of crazy gladness that we can act like we’re young, even if we’re a tad bit older than young!

So have I twisted your arm, come on tell me I have!  Saturday Centus is where we can just let everything go and be young again ...if you know what I mean!  Check more out here

I laughed too when I saw the prompt. I'm well beyond even thinking in terms of being young anymore, too. LOL
Was a fun write though. Nice Centus. :)

Great job !

Being way past young and the word die is closer at hand, I turn inward to the 16 year old me to feel young again and not worry about what must be eventually for all who live on earth !

What fun! I like this post. I too have passed young. Not going to happen.
I would love to link to this fun poist. I may have to do that.

Like you, I am past "young" in years, but when I do die, I hope to still feel as young as I do today. My best friend is 82 and acts like a young girl!

I was a bit worried as ,like you, you is a bit of a long time ago. Love your take on the prompt though as you are quite right - whatever age we can all be young!

Karen, may I come along with you?????? said...

This has such a fun, whimsical quality. Very nice.


Dazee Dreamer said...

hahaha. I loved this. And honestly, even tho I'm in my 50's I certainly don't feel like it. I'm 25 and it could be you and I running drunkenly down the street.

Jo said...

I loved your take on the prompt ... and hey, i dont consider myself old. In fact i hear that 85 is the new old!

Sue said...

Never thought about it, but I'm too old to die young, too!


Anna said...

That was actually one of my first thoughts when I read the prompt: what if you are already past 'young'? I'm not 20 anymore. I am not even just 30 anymore. But even 40 or 50 is too 'young' or too early to die.
Great solution to this difficult challenge.
Best wishes,
Anna's SC Wk 68 'If I die young'

It is good to see you are young at heart. Good write!

Tgoette said...

LOL! Great job! I didn't think the "die" part of the prompt would allow for any humor posts, but this was awesome in a cheery, playful way! Superb!

Enjoyable fare and a great piece of advice to follow...its far more fun pretending to be young than go through it again...great way to bled the "die" out of death.

Jenny said...

Karen, your heart and imagination will always be young! This was great!

Loved it.

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It's simple, уet effective.
A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox. Exceptional Blog!
