Looking in the mall for a nightgown, a 40-something lady tried her luck in a store known for its skimpy lingerie. To her delight, however, she found just what she was looking for. Waiting in the line to pay, she noticed a young woman behind me holding the same item.

This confirmed what she suspected all along: despite being nearly 50, she still had a very "with it" attitude.

"I see we have the same taste," she said proudly to the 20-something behind me.

"Yes," she replied. "I'm getting this for my mother."
