The Trials of Getting Older
- Tuesday, March 02, 2004
At a nursing home a group of seniors was sitting around talking about their ailments.
"My arms have gotten so weak I can hardly hold this cup of coffee", said one.
"Yes, I know", said another, "My cataracts are so bad I can't even see my coffee"
"I couldn't even mark an "X" at election time, my hands are so crippled" volunteered a third.
"What? Speak up! What? I can't hear you! I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck" said a fourth, to which several acknowledged weakly in agreement.
"My blood pressure pills make me so dizzy!" exclaimed another. "I forget where I am and where I'm going, said another."
I guess that's the price we pay for growing old", winced an old man as he slowly shook his head.
The others nodded in agreement.
"Well, count your blessings", said one woman cheerfully. Thank God that all of us can still drive!"
