Last week I had to have a dental procedure performed by an ORAL SURGEON, which required I NURSE myself back to health afterwards.

It’s a good thing I’m no BRAIN SURGEON, since I’m such an ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR! I keep forgetting to take my antibiotics and anti-inflammatories. I’d share the names of these meds with you, but I’m no PHARMACIST!

I must STILL possess my wits, though, since people are always asking if I’m a ROCKET SCIENTIST. It’s a good thing I don’t let these queries go to my HEADMASTER!!

Instead, I humbly reply:
“No, I’m just a ROCK STAR at my job as a LIFELONG LEARNER and WASTREL!”

It’s a good thing, too, because I’m a FOOL who’s not cut out to be a PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE, particularly one requiring hand-eye coordination like a TENNIS PLAYER or other RACKETEER.

I guess I’ll keep my gig as a STARVING ARTIST.

Make that a “WALKING POEM.”

You’ll have to ask MOVIE STAR Johnny Depp who he was referring to when he coined that term, but I’m sure he’d use the same term to describe the unNATURAL BEAUTY and WISE [Old] SAGE who is ME❣️
