Notes on Aging

  • When did my wild Oats turn to prunes and all bran?

  • I finally got my head together, now my body is falling apart.
  • Funny, I don't remember being absent minded.
  • It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser

 The Oyster
by Baxter Black

The sign upon the cafe wall said OYSTERS: fifty cents
"How quaint," the blue-eyed sweetheart said, with some bewilderance 
"I didn't know they served such fare out here upon the plain?"
"Oh sure," her cowboy date replied, "We're really quite urbane."

"I would guess they're Chesapeake or BluePoint, don't you think?
"No ma'am, they're mostly Hereford cross...and usually they're pink.
But I've been cold, so cold myself, what you say could be true
And if a man looked close enough, their pints could sure be blue!"

She said, "I gather them myself out on the bay alone.
I pluck them from the murky depths and smash them with a stone!"
The cowboy winced imaging a calf with her beneath
"Me, I use a pocket knife and yank'em with my teeth"

"Oh, my," she said, "You animal! how crude and unrefined!
Your masculine assertiveness sends shivers up my spine!
But I prefer a butcher knife too dull to really cut.
I wedge it in on either side and crack it like a nut.

I pry them out.  If they resist, sometimes I use the pliers 
Or even Granpa's pruning shears, if that's what it requires!"
'The hair stood on the cowboys neck.  His stomach did a whirl.
He'd never heard such grisly talk, especially from a girl!

"I like them fresh, " the sweetheart said and laid her menu down
Then ordered oysters for them both when the waiter came around
The cowboy smiled gamely, though her words stuck in his craw.
Nut he finally fainted dead away when she said, "I'll have mine raw!"
