Challenge #43 Age Improves

This challenge comes from a small writing group.  We have a large series of random questions that we answer and share.  The goal is to answer at least one per week.  My personal goal is to do this for one full year.


Name something that gets better with age.

Age Improves

First thing that pops into my mind is of course me! Well, friends and family may greatly disagree, but we all know people who improve with age. Dolly Parton, my all-time favorite just gets funnier and smarter as she ages. Cher, who defies age, just gets better and better. That’s just the first two who popped into my mind.

Cheese that just gets better and better is cheddar. We just purchased some 15 year old cheese that wound up costing at least 5 times more than any of the other cheeses purchased at that point and worth every cent.

Music in my mind in many cases is timeless. Operas performed and appreciated today that same as they were 100 years ago. I was a big fan of folk music from the 50’s and 60’s and I appreciate it just as much today as then and much of it seems as relevant today as it was then.

A pot of soup, stew, spaghetti sauce or chili always tastes better after a few days. If I have the time I will always prepare any of these items in advance of when I am planing on serving it. At least one day will certainly help the flavors to blend and deepen.
