Getting Older Can be Fun – Age with Humour!

One of the really nice things about memory loss as you grow older is that you can hide your own Easter eggs.

Reporter interviewing a 104-year-old wom an: “And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?” the reporter asked. She simply replied, “No peer pressure.”

As you get older, your secrets are safe with your friends. They can’t remember them either.

Just before the funeral service, the undertaker came up to the elderly widow and asked, “How old was your husband?” “98,” she replied. “Two years older than me.”

“So you’re 96,” the undertaker commented.

She responded, “Hardly worth going home, is it?”

Memories

A couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a ‘check-up’, the doctor tells them that they’re physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember.

Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. “Want anything while I’m in the kitchen?” he asks.

“Will you get me a bowl of ice cream please?”

“Sure.” He replies.

“Don’t you think you should write it down so you can remember it?” she asks.

“No, I can remember it.” he responds.

“Well, I’d like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so’s not to forget it?”

He says, “I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.”

“I’d also like whipped cream. I’m certain you’ll forget that, write it down.” she says.

Becoming irritated now, he says, “I don’t need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream – I’ve got it, for goodness sake!”

He then strides off with an air of impatience into the kitchen.

After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.

She stares at the plate for a moment and asks: “Where’s my toast?”
