Yesterday, your "Bebe Bonbon" received her AARP card in the mail. It's very exciting!!!
Here's to our future:
Five sisters, ages 78, 80, 82, 84 and 86, live in a house together.
One night the 82-year old draws a bath. She puts her foot in & pauses. She yells to the other sisters, 'Was I getting in or out of the bath?'
The 84-year-old yells back, 'I don't know. I'll come up & see.'
She starts up the stairs and pauses, 'Was I going up the stairs or down?'
The 86-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters. She shakes her head & says, 'I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knock on wood.'
She then yells, 'I'll come up& help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door.'
