Order! Order in the court!

Mr. Old: "I can't run as fast. I play tennis 5 days a week, and my serve isn't as strong as it was years ago."

Dr. Grumpy: "Dave, you're 85. You can't expect to be the same person you were years ago. None of us can. The fact that you're as healthy and active as you are at 85 is remarkable in itself."

Lady Old: "Dave, listen to the doctor. We're both getting old. We need to accept that, and be glad for what we have."

Mr. Old: "OH! Like you're one to talk!"

Lady Old: "What do you mean by that?"

Mr. Old: "You're the one getting your boobs fixed, or some other procedure, every other month!"

Lady Old: "That's different! It's for my self esteem! So I don't feel old!"

Mr. Old: "It isn't any different! And your boob jobs and stuff are a hell of a lot more expensive than a round of tennis!"

Lady Old "Leave my breasts out of this! This is your appointment!"

Mr. Old "It's not like you ever let me go to yours!"

Ok, so minus the boob job, I totally wouldn't mind being this couple when I'm 85.

Happily married people come in here, and something about my presence brings out all kinds of animosities.

I should share space with a divorce lawyer.

Trying to imagine a naked 85 year old lady with brand, spanking new breasts.

That's some picture.

>:p

Doris, don't give her any ideas. They both have cell phones with cameras.

Ever see a photo of Betty Weider?

As said before, I pray to be like this when I'm 85!

he has a good point. What was your reaction?

Grumpy, M.D. said...

I don't take sides. It's safer that way.

I don't want a boob job, ever, but I would love to play tennis 5 days a week when I'm 85! Good lord, I'm about to turn 40 (ack, I gave my age away!) and I think I'm less physically active than that couple. I ran a half marathon last December and that's been my claim to fame since then. Hehehe. Wow. Ok, I gotta start running again if I'm going to play tennis 5 times a week when I'm 85. And while I'm at it, perhaps I should learn to play tennis.

I had an 80 something pt once who had a boob job,every thing else sagged but those suckers stuck right up there like a teenagers,it was bizarre.Not that I ever wanted to get one anyway but the memory of that woman would be enough to stop me now.

You really couldn't make this stuff up if you tried. Truth wins again.

OMGOSH!!! What a great couple!!! lol!!!

Okay, I just laughed coffee all over my keyboard. I have been brain
raped because I will never get the visual of a woman that is 85 and getting a boob job. It has now been seared into my mind!

I love your blog!

BTW...You now owe me the repair cost to my laptop! LOL
This is hall of fame contender!

As someone who has been with her other half for 40 years - it's those sort of spats that allow it to last! I just don't believe all these people who say "never a cross word". It's like a pressure cooker - let the pressure off a bit and no probs.

Now I can't get my head round the boob job - though a reduction with liposuction round the midriff has minor attractions - but the ski season starts on Saturday and I'd really like to think I might be up there in 20 years time (25 seems like sheer optimism).

wv - orysocu, the alternative to agreeing with you (or I sock you)

Ah, what a hilarious couple. Also, tennis with 85 is damn good! If I had the choice between that and a boob job when I'm that age, I'd take the tennis option. :o

Maha said...

And I thought seeing a boob job on a 70 year old was... odd...

Good for them though. I spent the entire day lounging in my PJs watching movies instead of going out for a run which I promised myself I would for about 3 weeks now :P

so how big is her self esteem?

I suspect the theme of their marriage has been : Plus ca change, plus a la meme chose!
