Hi Michael, Hi Cap’n-Pirate-Translator Jan, Hi Floratang
That sounds like one of Tom’s “Quotable Quotes” :lol:
“Your body parts are descending without the aid of a parachute” -->
I understand this two ways, and I suspect the author intended that.
Descend can mean to drop or fall (also in the sense of move to a lower position)
!. Various parts of your body tend to fall (or sag) as you get older. And it’s hard to be gorgeous when everything is sagging. :lol:
2. As people get older, they’re usually not as strong as when they were younger. So, the strength of the body parts falls.
A parachute is designed to drastically reduce the speed of a fall, usually from a plane. Here it is used figuratively.
So, I think the author means there is nothing to slow or stop the rapid “fall” of your body parts.
