Wipe me baby!

One of the facts of life is that all babies need their faces wiped along with other parts of the body on a regular basis. While I accept this premise as a necessary evil for MOIST newborns, I am terrified of the prospect for myself as a dried up prune, rapidly marching toward geezer-dom into an even bigger n’ balder baby Huey.  No I haven’t succumbed to the allure of full blown portly Pull-Ups yet, but I do notice the craggy corners of my mouth retain more nutritional supplements than just a few years back.

If you thought leftovers were unappetizing before, try finding them several hours later stuck to your cheeks - inexplicably even if you’ve been wearing pants all day. Yes, I am not sure if with old age I’ve become less skilled with a spoon or if nature has cruelly called and out-sourced my mouth’s nerve-endings to send them to my aching knees n’ amazing feets.  These days barely a meal goes by where I cannot crustify and justify a doubled-up napkin three times over after an overflowing feed-bag feast. 

You would normally think pigging out on Pablum and the skills required to clean up afterward would become easier with perennial practice and advancing age. After all, I should now be fairly low maintenance since unlike real babies, I sit in my high chair willingly and can burp myself without being bounced. However as I get older, no matter how carefully I conspire to consume crumbs, when the plates are purloined, I’m always the dude with the food left ringing both face and placemat.

Since it’s rare that I have Wet-Naps in my wallet, I have asked my wife repeatedly for a wet nurse instead, but for some reason she finds my 'hygiene-ks' droll and says my idea is all wet. She’ll be sorry though when I soon turn to the ‘bottle’ to deal with my loss of dignity, self-respect, and a stubbled chin stuck shut from last night’s DIN. I hope my wife likes cleaning cruton-coated big babies, or if that’s not challenging enough, in a few years she can look forward to wiping something far lower on the 'spewed-food' chain -  a ‘DIRTY old man’!

  2. You should practice stuffing your cheeks like a squirrel. That way you can eat your stores without even having to open your mouth.

  3. Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting
    to know your situation; we have created some nice
    practices and we are looking to swap methods with others, why not

  4. Hi! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog like yours take
    a large amount of work? I'm brand new to blogging however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I
    can easily share my own experience and thoughts online.

    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!

  10. Hi there! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find
    a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!

  11. Hey Mr. Blogger: Can't tell if you are a baby or an old man.
    Maybe mid-aged but worried about future slobbering?
    Don't worry!
    Dribbling takes care of itself!
    But who takes care of all the
    others who have to take care of you???
    (Obamacare I guess.)
