Senior Laughter

As I was browsing through the Internet, looking for ideas and topics to write about today, I came across a joke that made me laugh real hard. Every time there is a questionable joke I find or hear however makes me think twice before posting it anywhere. As I wascontemplating about whether I should share this joke with you, I started thinking about what it must be like living the golden years. The kidsare out of the house and living their own lives, raising their families. The grandkids are a true joy when they come over but it’s just as nicewhen they leave to go home. Yes, I think what is nice about being a senior is that we can live for ourselves. Many of the responsibilitiesthat we have been carrying throughout our lives are now gone and we can truly start enjoying “me” time selfishly.  No, you are right, I amnot a senior citizen yet, but I will be, and once I get there I think I will enjoy sharing a good joke when I see one without thinking twice aboutit. I will just let loose and tell it how it is. And to learn from my future senior self here is the joke that I thought was hilarious.

‘Three mischievous old grandmas were sitting on a bench outside a nursing home when an old grandpa walked by.

One of the old grandmas yelled out saying, ‘We bet we can tell exactly how old you are.’ The old man said, ‘There is no way you can guess it, you old fools.’

One of the old grandmas said, ‘Sure we can! Just drop your pants and under shorts and we can tell your exact age.’ Embarrassed just a little but anxious to prove they couldn’t do it, he dropped his drawers.

The grandmas asked him to first turn around a couple of times and to jump up and down several times. Then they all piped up and said, ‘You’re 87 years old!’ Standing with his pants down around his ankles, the old gent asked, ‘How in the world did you guess?’

Slapping their knees and grinning from ear to ear, the three old ladies happily yelled in unison — ‘We were at your birthday party yesterday!’

So there it is. Life is worth smiling about and laughter is definitely the best cure for anything that might be keeping us down. If I will havethis much life left in me at a nursing home close to 90, I think I will be doing just fine. Happy laughter everyone and if you have a greatjoke you would like to share, than join me on my Facebook page to entertain us.
