As we grow older, we experience great change. Wrinkles seem to grow like weeds, plotting the lifelines of our stories upon frail skin. We aren’t as nimble anymore; even walking to the mailbox has become a feat. But rather than mourn her youth, one elderly woman manages to find humor in her situation.
In this hilarious joke from tickld, we share in a comical experience that comes with age.
Read the joke below.
One evening a family brings their frail, elderly mother to a nursing home and leaves her, hoping she will be well cared for.
The next morning, the nurses bathe her, feed her a tasty breakfast, and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden.
She seems OK, but after a while she slowly starts to fall over sideways in her chair. Two attentive nurses immediately rush up to catch her and straighten her up.
Again she seems OK, but after a while she starts to tilt to the other side. The nurses rush back and once more bring her back upright.
This goes on all morning. Later the family arrives to see how the old woman is adjusting to her new home.
“So Ma, how is it here? Are they treating you all right?” they ask.
“It’s pretty nice,” she replies. “Except they won’t let you fart”
Now that was priceless.
Aging is not a choice; not one of us will escape it. We must be lighthearted while we learn to embrace our change with grace. For what is life if we cannot poke a little fun, even at ourselves?
