What did she say?

The other day I was walking along the road when I saw that an old-ish woman (I am guessing at late 60s) had slipped over and a guy was trying to help her up. He was not succeeding.

I rushed over to help, arriving at around the same time as 3 other guys.

We all grabbed arms, hands, etc, and soon she was on her feet, smiling and thanking us.

A passing woman stepped in and commented.

"Wasn't it nice to have all these young men rushing to help?"

The rescued woman looked her in the eye and replied:

"Yes, but where were they when I was young enough to enjoy it?"

You gotta keep your sense of humor when you get older.

Chief Rock Chef said...

Um Naief - she sure does!

agg79 - Ain't that the truth!

Seeing as it is my 64th birthday today - and I honestly don't feel elderly - let's put her age as the late 70's maybe????? Love the story and I always say that a sense of humor is one of the most important character qualities to have!

Chief Rock Chef said...

Claire - Yeah, she looked a lot older than you, so maybe that is a better guess at her age. But on the other hand, you really don't look 64!

Happy Belated Birthday!
