My mother is 84. She…

If you are among the calorie consuming, H2O dependant, socially modified contingent of humanity and you reside on the extraterrestrial avenues and slips, and strasses(German for street, no schauffers -S-) of this same satellite, the planet  Earth, as me, then yes! You  would be an asset to yourself, and may even be an assist to me; and maybe even: though seemingly ineffectual to every, other, single person in the wold... and the married, and divorced possibly even hermaphrodites…
