Creative Prompt #189: Old

Since it is the first week of the year, I feel like I should use ‘New’ as the prompt, but I already used it. You can see ‘new,’ which may inspire your response to ‘old’ in a previous post dated 12/3/2010. It is prompt #96.

Old Man River

2 year old, 3 year old 4 year old, etc

Definition: Adjective, 1. Having lived for a long time; no longer young; 2. Made or built long ago: “the old quarter of the town”. (from Google definitions)

Definition/ Etymology #2: From Old English ald, eald, from Proto-Germanic *aldaz (“grown-up”), originally a participle form from Proto-Indo-European *altós, corresponding to Latin altus. Cognate with Dutch oud, Low German old, German alt, West Frisian âld, Scots auld. (Click on the link at this beginning of this part; lots of great ways to think about ‘old’.)
