Something a little different for my Sunday post. I get a lot of emails that want me to “send it on” with promises of wonderful events to follow, wishes to come true, and even money to come my way if I do OR threats of dire things to happen to me if I don’t sent them on. I often enjoy reading them, but resent the push to forward; especially if it’s a threat. If something is really good, I will send it on. If not, I won’t. But don’t make me promises that are totally out of your control, and definitely, don’t threaten. Nothing puts me off more.
However, every once in a while something comes along that is totally worth sharing! I think this is one of those times. First, of course, I have to clean up all the huge writing, typos, and silly formatting because it is something that is perfectly capable of standing on its own. So here it is. It comes with the caveat, “If you are a senior, you will understand this one; if you deal with seniors, this should help you understand them a little better; if you are not a senior yet, God willing, someday you will be. Here it is:
No Flies on Seniors!
The $2.99 SPECIAL
We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the “seniors’ special” was two eggs, bacon, hash browns, and toast for $2.99.
“Sounds good,” my wife said, “But I don’t want the eggs.”
“Then, I’ll have to charge you $3.49 for ordering a la carte,” the waitress warned her.
“You mean I have to pay extra for not taking the eggs?” my wife asked incredulously!
“Yes,” stated the waitress.
“Then I’ll take the special,” my wife said.
“How would you like your eggs?” the waitress asked.
“Raw and in the shell,” my wife replied.
She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.
Don’t mess with seniors!
We’ve been around the block more than once!
Hope you enjoyed my Sunday post!
