A New Perspective

Seeing her friend Sally wearing a new locket, Meg asks if there is a memento of some sort inside.

“Yes,” says Sally, “a lock of my husband’s hair.”

“But Larry’s still alive.”

“I know, but his hair is gone.”

Senior Lingo

Senior citizens have taken to texting with gusto. They even have their own vocabulary:

BFF: Best Friend Fainted
BYOT: Bring Your Own Teeth
CBM: Covered by Medicare
FWB: Friend with Beta-blockers
LMDO: Laughing My Dentures Out
GGPBL: Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low!

screaming no longer phases me ecard funny

Teeth Cleaning

The sight of my mother cleaning her dentures fascinated my young son. He sat riveted as she carefully took them out, brushed and rinsed them, and then popped them back in. “Cool, Grandma!” he said. “Now take off your arm.”

Must I comment? Okay, I’ll comment if I must. No, I changed my mind, I can’t comment. What do you mean you want to read my comment? I told you I can’t comment. Please stop insisting that I comment. Isn’t it obvious that I don’t want to comment on your post Aging Seniors? Besides, what do I know about aging? I’m forever young! 😉
