After all these years

from Wayne Wood

Beautiful day, driving around. Open sun roof. Turn up radio, sing along. Put on shades. Feeling cool.

Then I realize:

• Shades make things so clear because they are new progressive bifocals

• Song is an Al Stewart number dating from the Carter administration

• Car is decade-old Volvo wagon

• The shopping list in my pocket is related to an upcoming colonoscopy

Then I think: dammit, I’m still cool.
