Dedicated to the old man at my parents' neighborhood barbecue tonight, and to the youngish female doctor that he sought out for friendly conversation.
Old Man: Did I hear you say that you work at the hospital?
Old Man: I don't want to go to the hospital.
Lady: You could just stop by to say hi.
Old Man: I do that sometimes. I'm (I couldn't hear the number) years old.
Lady: Well, you certainly don't look your age. You must be doing something right.
Old Man: I chase my wife around.
Lady: ha ha. That keeps you young, I guess, chasing after your wife.
Old Man: I could chase after you instead... but I would never catch you.
He is 92 or 93, I believe. He just had a birthday. He and his wife also just celebrated their 65 year wedding anniversary. He has many life experiences!ReplyDelete
