The pains of getting older..


seniors lunchA group of senior citizens was sitting around in the café in town, talking about all their ailments.

“My arms have gotten so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee,” said one.

“Yes, I know”, said another. “My cataracts are so bad; I can’t even see my coffee”.

“I couldn’t even mark an “X” at election time, my hands are so crippled”, volunteered a third

“What? Speak up! What? I can’t hear you”, said one elderly lady!

“I can’t turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck”, said one, to which several nodded weakly in agreement

“My blood pressure pills make me so dizzy and light headed all the time!”, exclaimed another.

“I forget where I am, and where I’m going”, said another.

“I guess that’s the price we pay for getting old,” winced an old man as he slowly shook his head.

The others nodded in agreement.

“Well, count your blessings”, said a woman cheerfully….

“Thank God we can all still drive or we couldn’t meet up here in town every afternoon.”
