How come I never looked like Hot Stuff in a sundress? My sundresses by comparison look anemic and shapeless My figure is not what it used to be (it is hopeless) It’s fallen down, spread out and looks a trifle excessive Hot Stuff’s figure is lush, provocative and caressive Her sundress is stylish, vivid and really expensive My secondhand garb lacks style and are oppressive Maybe a sundress worn at seventy-five is not impressive Whereas, Hot Stuff’s body and dress are “in your face” aggressive Am I too hard on myself, too critical and depressive? Let’s face it; I’ll never look like Hot Stuff in a sundress Just thinking about it makes me manic-depressive Hot Stuff’s look is suggestive and expressive Whereas mine is age-regressive and inexpressive I never looked like Hot Stuff in retrospect Yet we all have “our day” in one way or another, I suspect I had mine so it’s time to step back and reflect (Kindly!) on our replacements without resentment Wishing them splendor in the sun without impediment. “The Sundress” Carol Zic

Hmm I think "Hot Stuff" wouldn't hold a candle to your charm & wit though, Carol! I think the zest within is what would make you hot stuff yourself ;) Congrats on your win :)
