Gloomy Truths

When walking down the street coming upon an elderly person your memory banks displays an image of an elderly person and that is that, however, if the image of this elderly person is distorted, meaning the skin, posture and hair color does not match what has been stored, the image before you appears ‘odd’. Acquaintance will only marvel at how well this person looks and choose not to see the oddity. Even when this person looks into a looking glass sees only what they want to see, not the oddity. A person over fifty has the posture, skin of the elderly, dyed hair brings on the oddity as if a tween had gray hair hence the ‘oddity’ of appearance. Few elderly no matter how much cosmetic surgery and hair dye can avoid appearing as and ‘oddity’, look around you can tell who they are…are you one too?
