I was doing a crossword the other day and the clue said: "Aged, in one's ....."?
Immediately, I thought the word "Prime". 'Prime' was me, most definitely. I was as prime as a cut of beef.
But the five letters for the word 'Prime' wouldn't fit in the six letter gap.
Gradually, as I did more and more of that crossword, the correct word came into being .....
What? The word 'aged' means that I'm in my 'dotage'?
No, no, never. I can still think clearly (most of the time). I gym, I swim, and now that I've got over the dreaded plantar fasciitis of the foot, I walk seemingly endlessly over the hills and dales of Wellington.
Oh dear... For the love of little bunnies ... Goodness gracious me .... Heaven's-to-Betsy ... ##???**!!**-bleepity-bleep-bleep!!!!!
Crosswords do tend to breed cross words.
