Sharp as a Tack

I turned on my Dragon speech recognition software, because I feel this is the best way to write a Stream of Consciousness Saturday post.  I am not a sharp dressed man and I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I do like my cheese sharp.  I come to WordPress every day to write and read other bloggers posts, which I feel keeps my mind active.  No Alzheimer’s disease or dementia for me yet, as I remain extremely clever, astute and mentally alert, but that is not saying that it isn’t lurking around the next corner.  It is not easy getting old, as everything starts falling apart.  I’m not the same person that I was when I was younger, I lost my hair and I am out of shape.

I have sharpened a lot of pencils in my day and I have put up with some sharp criticism, as that is the way of the world.  I never wanted to be a politician and have to live my life in public scrutiny, but I do consider myself to be an honest man.  I have done some things that I am not proud of, which I am not going to get into here, but it was nothing on the level of cheating on my wife with her sister.  Some things should be taboo, they should never happen, but when you are a womanizer like Robert Plant, then you catch the wind and sail away, because you think that you are allowed to start a romance with your ex-wife’s sister.  Speaking of sharp cheese, my favorite is piave vecchio and I would recommend that everybody try that at least once in their life.

Written for Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday where the prompt is sharp.
