A distraught senior citizen
phoned her doctor's office.
"Is it true," she wanted to know,
"that the medication
you prescribed has to be taken
for the rest of my life?"

a renowned surgeon,

if something happens to me,
your mother is going to come and

Eventually you will reach a point
when you stop lying about your age
and start bragging about it.


The older we get, the fewer things
seem worth waiting in line for.

Two old guys
are pushing their carts around Wal-Mart
when they collide.

The first old guy says to the second guy,
"Sorry about that. I'm looking for my wife,
and I guess I wasn't paying attention
to where I was going."

The second old guy says,
"That's OK, it's a coincidence.
I'm looking for my wife, too.
I can't find her and I'm getting a little desperate."

The first old guy says, "Well,
maybe I can help you find her.
What does she look like?"

" The second old guy says,
"Well, she is 27 yrs old, tall,
with red hair,
blue eyes,
long legs,
and is wearing short shorts.
What does your wife look like?"

To which the first old guy says,
"Doesn't matter, let's look for yours."
