Guerrilla Aging: Lounging At the Bottom of the Learning Curve, a guest post by Paula J Wray

Posted on February 6, 2015


Paula is the author of PaulaJWray.  In her own words, “I am a writer. Mostly humor. Sometimes I vent and sometimes I wax spiritual, philosophical, or poetic. I even try my pen at flash fiction and creative non-fiction. I live in the Rocky Mountains with my husband and a balding black cat. When I’m not writing, making lists, or forcing a family member to listen to something I’ve written, I’m reading, gardening, or laughing with my friends. I also, sometimes, sit and stare.

“You can find my view of life at three different places. 

Some people do crosswords. Some sudoku. Some even subscribe to apps especially designed to challenge their brain cells. Anything to keep those neurons firing at their optimum efficiency. Here at our house, we put the kitchen trash can on the opposite side of the sink from where it used to be.

Of the approximately kajillion times I’ve thrown something in the trash can since we switched sides last weekend, I’ve chosen the correct side only about four times. Of course, that’s been on my first try. I almost always choose correctly on my second try.
