Giggle of the day…life as a senior citizen can be so much fun!

Yesterday my daughter e-mailed me again, asking why I didn’t do
something useful with my time.

“Like playing golf and tennis, sitting around the pool, and drinking
wine is not a good thing?” I asked.

Talking about 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 hang out with the guys.

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, “Are you nuts? You are 70 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

She immediately telephoned me and yelled, “Good grief, where are
your glasses?! This is a Membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute

“Oh man, I’m in trouble again,” I said, “I really don’t know what to
do. 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 fun.
