Beware the cranky old broad
Here is my latest pondering: is it winter or old age that is making me cranky? I hope it’s the former but fear it’s the latter since I’m cranky year round these days.

That would make a woman tilted alright but what’s a five letter word for it? I skipped it and moved on.
