Growing Old Is Fun
Yesterday my daughter again asked why I didn't
do something useful with my time. Talking about
my "doing something useful" seemed to be her
favorite topic of conversation. She was "only
thinking of me" and suggested I go down to the
senior center and hang out with the guys.
I did this and when I got home last night I decided
to teach her a lesson about staying out of my
business. I told her that I had joined a parachute
She said, "Are you nuts? You're almost 74 years
old and you're going to start jumping out of
I proudly showed her that I even got a membership
She said to me, "Good grief, where are your
glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute
Club, not a Parachute Club."
"I'm in trouble again, and I don't know what to do...
I signed up for five jumps a week." I told her.
Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier
but sometimes it can be fun.
Today is the oldest you've ever been, yet the youngest you'll ever be, so enjoy this day while it lasts.
