#147: Don’t Take Pictures of Your Freaking Flowers

Jump to Comments

Okay, I’ve been getting complaints. Ho Springs is okay, people have been telling me. But we really love How Not To Act Old and want you to write some new posts instead of just leaving that big honking Ho Springs ad up there day after livelong I’m-so-bored-I’m-going-to-blow-my-brains-out day.

All right, not a very effective way to get me to bring HNTAO back. Telling me how much you adore Ho Springs, how you’re making all your friends rush right over there and tweeting it up and posting Juliette’s facebook status as your own would do much more to motivate me to give you what you want.

Instead, I kinda feel like Woody Allen in Stardust Memories:

Okay, I wish I were like Woody Allen.

I’m going to keep urging you toward Ho Springs, which is absorbing a lot of my creative fervor right now. And those hungry for more HNTAO can join the facebook group, where there’s always lots of spirited discussion on matters of age and not-age.

Meanwhile, though, to quench the thirst for up-to-date instruction, resist the urge to photograph all those flowers coming into bloom. Don’t even get me started on the implications of gardening, but flower-photographing can be an age-related danger even for those not growing flowers of their own.

And when you’re really bad, like me, you take videotapes of your flowers. I made the one following the other day as a way to document the overzealous leaf-blowing of my neighbors, but jeez, I gotta say: How old and cranky is that??
