Ha! I am in dire need of a little "Youth Elixir" this morning. Maybe I'll head to the flea market.
If only I could find the flea market.
Oh I too need the elixir! I look like crap these days..well most of the days really! :DRandom Thoughts Naba
Me thinks you are a wee harsh on yourself. Just remember you are gorgeous. Who cares what anyone else thinks.
frankly not sure I got that - but great description
You obviously don't need youth elixir. I had thought of ending with the woman saying, "People remember looking better than they are." or "People just think they looked younger than they were." Anyway, I went with the premise that people who are vain enough to use youth elixir would get hooked on the substance especially if they began to look even older.
Repeat customers - I suppose once you go down that path it's hard to reverse course!
Lucille Ball used to joke about her gallon jugs of henna. I think if this existed, there might be gallon jugs in every old broads vanity cabinets. lol, I would probably forget to drink mine half the time.
Ha! I can't imagine anything more addictive. :)
Youth elixir. How creative. Then again we are all looking for the fountain of youth :) Nicely done :)~Shailaja
So cleverly written. You made every word count. I'm cheering as I read this again.well done
Ha! Ooo, I really love this one. So original; such a big story in a tiny space.
My new wish: elixirs to solve my problems!
Lots of fun. There's a canny business woman.
