Yesterday my daughter asked (again) why I didn’t do something useful with my time. Talking about my “doing something useful” seemed to be her favourite topic of conversation at the moment. She was “only thinking of me” and suggested I go down to the senior centre and socialize with the other seniors and play games, do crafts, play cards or bowl, and have lunch.
I did this a few times and when I got home last night, I decided to teach her a lesson about staying out of my business.
I told her that I had a great time and met one of the volunteers there who signed me up for a parachute club.
She said, “Are you nuts? You’re over 85 years old and you’re going to start jumping out of air-planes ?”
I proudly showed her that I even got a membership card.
She said to me, “Good grief, where are your glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club.”
“Well then I’m in trouble twice… I signed up for five jumps a week,” I told her.
Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier, but sometimes it really can be fun…..
Nancy, this is like something I would do! It made me giggle!
