I have seen the future and it wasn't pretty.

As I was sitting on the couch moments ago, my arm got an itch. Since the high today was in the low 60's, it's been cool enough that I'm wearing a sweatshirt, so I raised my arm up so the sleeve would slide back and I could scratch it. 

And there it was. In the light I saw my future. Old person skin. You know what I mean, right? That papery, wrinkly skin look you normally see on older people. Like, much older than my tender forty years. ::Snort:: It bothered me way worse than the bat wings that refuse to disappear from the underside of my arms. 

You know, I thought adapting this healthier lifestyle was supposed to ADD years to my life, not just make me look like I added them all myself - this year. 

Luckily, the older version of my arm skin I saw tonight disappeared after I slathered on some lotion, but it's a comin'. 

It's a comin'.

I hear you. If I pluck out any more grey hairs, I'm gonna have a bald patch.
