A to Z Challenge 2017

Vintage Grit

Welcome! My 2017 theme is UnSimply She Fiction. Each post begins with a simple sentence about a She. This fictional She is anything but simple. She may be dark. She may be funny. You may relate to her. You many not like her at all…She is revealing her truth.

She decided she is not old. She is vintage.

She is tired of listening to the cackling of complaining. She is over hearing what her peers have gained: weight, cellulite, a mustache. Whatever.

The obsession with self-condemention at the age of ____ is ridiculous to her.  She sees it as more of an excuse to not try.

She decides  she is Vintage. Vintage is sexy. Vintage is experience. Vintage is timeless.  Vintage is not given.  Vintage is the love child of grit and guts.

She declines the next invitation to the next cacklefest.

Instead, she signs up for swimming lessons. She is afraid of the water. She knows fear clashes with vintage.  She wants to learn to swim, dive, and then….Triathlon training will begin.

How dare the hens say she is too old! She is Vintage. She is the stuff of guts and grits.
