You wake up one day and realize you’re ten years older than you were the previous night. Beyond the initial shock, how does this development change your life plans?

To Whom It May Concern:
I’m writing this letter to challenge the latest daily prompt in which you wish to deprive me from ten years of my life. How could anyone possibly loose ten years of their life in one night? This is not at all something that was discussed in my contract when I signed up for wordpress.com. While I seldom come up with ingenious ways to accommodate most of your ideas into posts that I can relate to in order to offer a pleasant reading experience, this prompt stands to bring out an ugly side of my personality that would surely scare away most of my followers.
I’m not necessarily afraid to look old. . .er, but I would very much resent the fact that at this stage of aging in my life, ten years would mean that it would take a crane to get me up from bed in the morning. Dear god, I would have surely woken up in a wet bed! And that is not to mention that I would be spitting out my remaining teeth. I’m sure that my little seven year old daughter would appreciate suddenly having a living grandmother to play with and dutely be spoiled by her, but ten years. . . in one night. . . really?
No, absolutely not! I advise you to revise your latest suggestion. I don’t think that your writers took into consideration the pain and anxiety that this prompt would bring to bridle, and self conscious psyches like mine. I’m sure I’m not alone in this complain. . . the fact that I am the only one challenging your decision should be a testament to how disappointed and scare many other people are since they are probably afraid to speak up their true mind.
I thank you in advance for your prompt consideration and wait eagerly for a new and age appropriate idea for today’s writing suggestion.
Sincerely and much obliged,
