“Can you believe he’s going to be ninety? Next month?” Admiration cartwheeled across Thalia’s features. “Out walking with his cane, temps in the teens, and gale force winds — there was ice on the path! I want Typist to be him when she’s 89!”
“Admirable,” Nią looked up from the day’s planner.
“He said he can’t ‘sit around the house’ because when he does… he gets ‘all stiff.’”Calliope’s hamstrings gave a small cry of protest in response to an early morning forward fold. “Move it… or lose it.”
Words from Typist:
I collect octogenarians like a magnet attracts metal shavings. 😂
I wonder what that’s about?
What do you attract?
And do you wonder… Why?
Perhaps you’ll write a haiku, or a six-word-sentence in response?

“I’m going to lie
under the tree so folks know
that I am a gift”
Had to restructure the original t-shirt quip for 5/7/5, and "T-shirt" is NOT part of the haiku this time. Also doesn't even remotely fit in with the 3mm topic today, and readers will just have to know that the tree mentioned is a Christmas tree. And I guess I don't so much *attract* quips as go searching for them.
Otherwise, totally seamless. <cough>
