The ABCs Of Aging ...

Acesta e un soi de alfabet primit prin newsletterul de la jgj, pe care Gmailul il baga invartiabil in spam si eu invariabil ii anunt ca e non spam, dar fara rezultat. Or fi stiind ei mai bine? Din pacate textul mi se pare intraductibil in romana. Incercati Google Translate, poate o sa radeti cand o sa cititi ce iese (eu nu am aceasta curiozitate)

The ABCs Of Aging ...

A is for apple, and B is for Boat,
that used to be right, but now it won't float.
Age before beauty is what we once said,
but let's be a bit more realistic instead.

Now, A's for arthritis; B's the bad back,
C is for chest pains, perhaps cardiac.
D is for dental decay and decline;
E is for eyesight, can't read that top line.

F is for fissures and fluid retention,
G is for gas, which I'd rather not mention.
H is high blood pressure--I'd rather it low;
I for incisions with scars you can show.

J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend.
K is for knees that crack when they bend.
L for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory, I forget! What comes next?

N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low;
O is for osteo, the bones that don't grow!
P for prescriptions, I have quite a few,
Just give me a pill and I'll be good as new.

Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R for reflux, one meal turns to two.
S for sleepless nights, counting my fears.
T for tinnitus; there's bells in my ears.

U is for urinary; big troubles with flow;
V is for vertigo, that's "dizzy" you know.
W is for worry, NOW what's going round?
X is for X-ray, and what might be found.

Y is another year I'm left here behind,
Z is for zest that I still have--in my mind.

I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed,
And I've kept twenty-six doctors fully employed!

In schimb eu am incercat sa traduc cu GT niste sfaturi culinare si am ras cu lacrimi cand am citit ca scria ceva cu "le pot decola" si "vor sufla ele in sus"(era vorba de galuste care se umfla). Sfatul nu era pt mine.
