Baudelaire-ian Eyebags

Looking in the mirror at the puffy bags under my eyes, thinking how they’ve been putting in morning mirror appearances more and more in recent years — and perhaps, though I can’t recall their previous manifestations clearly enough to be sure, with a progressively increasing size, puffiness, darkness of coloration; thinking how, when I was in high school and first saw the famous photo of Charles Baudelaire sporting his so-so-very-gnarly eyebags, I simply could not imagine s day coming when I would reach a point where my own eyebags might arrive at a state of prominence anywhere close to rivaling those of CB.

Will, this year, I be able to slow or even halt, however temporarily, their incessant onslaught?

How I age!
