Yesterday my SON e-mailed me asking why I didn't do something useful with my time.
Like sitting around playing on my computer is not a good thing? I asked.
Talking about my "doing-something-useful" seems to be his favorite topic of conversation.
He said he was "only thinking of me",
he said and suggested that I go down to the Senior Center and hang out with the ladies.
I did this and when I got home last night, I decided to play a prank on him.
le-mailed him and told him that I had joined a Parachute Club.
He replied, "Are you nuts?
You are 60 years old and now you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"
I told him that I even got a Membership Card and e-mailed a copy to him.
He immediately telephoned me and yelled, "Good grief, Mom, where are your glasses?!
This is a Membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."
"Oh man, I'm in trouble again, I said, I really don't know what to do.
I signed up for five jumps a week!!"
The line went quiet and his friend picked up the phone and said that my son had fainted.
Life as a Senior Citizen is not getting any easier, but sometimes it can be fun... Stolen from a friend
