Where are your Glasses ?



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

 
“Like 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 78 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 her.
 

 
She immediately telephoned me and yelled, "Good grief, Mom, where are your glasses?

This is a Membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."

 
"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.
