Daughters Advice to Mom
DAUGHTER'S ADVICE TO OLDER MOM TO GET BUSY
Yesterday my daughter asked why I didn't do something useful with my time. Talking about my "doing something useful" seemed to be her favorite topic of conversation. She was "only thinking of me" & suggested I go to the senior center & hang out with the guys.
... I did this & 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 joined a parachute club.
She said, "Are you nuts? You're almost 78 years old and you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"
I proudly showed her that I even got a membership card.
She said to me, "Good grief Mother, where are your glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."
"Good Lord" I replied, "I'm in trouble again ... I signed up for five jumps a week."
She fainted. Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier, but sometimes it can be fun.
