Baudelaire-ian Eyebags

Posted by VERITAS

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!
