CHUCKLES: Mother, Are You Nuts?

Yesterday my daughter e-mailed me again, asking why I didn't do something Screen Shot 2017-01-08 at 19.15.24useful with my time.
 
"Like, me sitting around the pool and drinking wine is not a good thing?" I asked.
 
My "doing-something-useful"  seems to be her favorite topic of conversation.
 
She was  "only thinking of me", she said and suggested that I go down to the Senior Center and join something.
 
I did this and when I got home last night, I decided to play a prank on her.
 
I e-mailed her and told her that I had joined a Parachute Club.
 
She replied,  "Mother, are you nuts?  You are 78 years old and now you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"
 
I told her that I even got a Membership Card and e-mailed a copy to her.
 
She immediately telephoned me and yelled, "Good grief, Mom, where are your glasses?! This is a Membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."
 
I calmly replied, "Oh my, I think I'm in real trouble then, because I signed up for five jumps a week!!"
 
The line went quiet and her friend picked up the phone and said that my daughter had fainted.
 
Life as a Senior Citizen is not getting any easier, but sometimes it can be real fun.
 
Just because you're "Young" doesn't mean that you can outsmart an "old Geezer"
 
Remember: Don't make old people mad. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to tick us off.
