Chuckle of the Day – Poof The Light Goes On

by Sherry Riter in Aging,Chuckle


old man

A 72-year-old man goes for a physical. All of his tests come back with normal results. The doctor says, ‘Jerry, everything looks great. How are you doing mentally and emotionally? Are you at peace with God?’

Jerry replies, ‘God and I are tight. He knows I have poor eyesight, so he’s fixed it for when I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, *poof*!, the light goes on. When I’m done, *poof*!, the light goes off.’

‘Wow, that’s incredible,’ the doctor says.

A little later in the day, the doctor calls Jerry’s wife. ‘ Ginger ,’ he says, ‘Jerry is doing fine but I had to call you because I’m in awe of his relationship with God. Is it true that he gets up during the night and *poof *!, the light goes on in the bathroom, and when he’s done, *poof*! the light goes off?’

‘Oh my goodness!’ Ginger exclaims. ‘He’s peeing in the fridge again!!!!’

Isn’t aging fun?!

LMBO–this is soooo hilarious and I sooo needed this. I was wondering what was going on but I guessed wrong–didn't guess he was peeing in the fridge. Too funny and gross the more you think about it. Also, I gave you a blog award. I have been "stalking" your blog quietly and I love it–especially your domestic violence series. That is why I gave you the versatile blog award. Come by and get it when you get a chance.
