How to be cruel to old guys: AARP Eye Chart

AARP Eye Chart

Number Two

Because they had no reservations at a busy restaurant, my elderly neighbor and his wife were told there would be a 45-minute wait for a table.

‘Young man, we’re both 90 years old,’ the husband said,’We may not have 45 minutes.’

They were seated immediately.

Number Three

Life Broken Down Into Segments

The Young

Ponds Cold Cream

Larry watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face.

‘Why do you do that, Mommy?’ he asked.

‘To make myself beautiful,’ said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue.

‘What’s the matter,’ asked Larry. ‘Are you giving up, Mommy?’

I was intently looking over your post, when baked French toast captured my attention. Thank-you!
