“Dear optimist, pessimist, and realist–while you guys were busy arguing about the glass of wine, I drank it! Sincerely, the opportunist!”

FORGOT MY GLASSES
Yesterday my daughter again asked why I didn’t do something useful with my time.
Talking about my “doing something useful” seemed to be her favorite topic of conversation.
She was “only thinking of me” and suggested I go down to the senior center and hang out with the guys.
I did this and when I got home last night I decided to teach her a lesson about staying out of my business.
I told her that I had joined a parachute club.
She said, “Are you nuts? You ‘re almost 79 years old and you’re going to start jumping out of airplanes?”
I proudly showed her that I even got a membership card.
She said to me, “Good grief, where are your glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club,
not a Parachute Club.”
“I’m in trouble again, and I don’t know what to do… I signed up for five times a week,” I told her. She fainted.
Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier
but sometimes it can be fun.
