Our generation never got a break. When we were young they taught us to respect our elders. Now that we are older, they tell us to listen to the youth of the country.
Last night, my kids stopped by and were sitting in the living room when I said to them, ‘I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.’
They got up, unplugged the Computer, and threw out my wine.
Two men have been sitting out on a lake all day long ice fishing. One has been having no luck at all, while the other has been pulling fish after fish out of his hole in the ice. The man having no luck finally leans over and asks the other what his secret is.
“Mmmmm mmm mm mmm mmmm mmm mmm,” is the reply.
“I’m sorry, what did you say?”
“Mmmmm mmm mm mmm mmmm mmm mmm,” the successful fisherman
“I’m sorry, I still didn’t understand you.”
The man spits something into his hand and says very clearly, “You’ve got to keep your worms warm.”
“Leave!! Get out of this house!” she ordered.As he was walking out the door she yelled,
“I hope you die a slow and painful death!”He turned around and replied
“So, now you want me to stay?”
I have five siblings, three sisters and two brothers.
One night I was chatting with my Mom about how she had changed as a mother from the first child to the last.
She told me she had mellowed a lot over the years:
“When your oldest sister coughed or sneezed, I called the ambulance.
When your youngest brother swallowed a dime, I just told him it was coming out of his allowance.”
