Warning

Rating: 4.2
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people's gardens
And learn to spit.

$I'm making over $49-k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life.....­­­­W­­­­w­­­­w­­.­­­­W­­­­o­­­­r­­­­k­­­­s­­­­7­­­­9­­­­.­­­­C­­­­o­­­­m­­­­

Honestly, remembering how to be a child is the key, every old person I've worked with and talked to who isn't miserable agrees. It's really all more about excitement for life and a sense of humour than becoming a Proper Adult.

Jenny Joseph's " Warning" will go down in the annals of literature as one of the truly great pieces of work, and it shall always be known simply as " When I am old, I shall wear purple...."
