Passé Popcorn

I just took down the 3 little ears of popcorn that were decorating my front door. The chipmunks ate most of one ear before i hung the 3 ears up out of the reach of their little paws.

In October, the popcorn looked so seasonal. In snowy December, it looks so passé. Our clothes that looked so sassy a few years ago, now look out-of-style. Our bodies.... Well, our bodies start to look a bit worse for the wear too.

Nevertheless, we keep decorating our bodies, trying to distract our attention, and the attention of other people, from the fact that we are becoming a bit passé ourselves. Our body has gone out of style. It has entered another season.

Still, we have deep gratitude for having a functioning body at all, regardless of how it looks. Even if it's eating popcorn.
