As you get older, you start to have all kinds of body problems. That’s why it’s so great that you don’t need to work when you’re a retiree – taking the right pills, vitamins and treatments can be something of a job in itself.
Okay, that might be exaggerating it a bit – but once you reach a certain age, you deserve plenty of free time to do whatever you want to.
But to do that, you need to be healthy and be able to smile and laugh at life, or you won’t appreciate the free time you have. As my grandma used to say, shared joy is double joy – and I definitely think she’s right about that.
This story sure made me smile, and I hope you’ll like it too!
A 91-year-old man was requested by his doctor for a sperm count as part of his physical exam.
The doctor gave the man a jar and said, “Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow.”
The next day the 91-year-old man reappeared at the doctor’s office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.
The doctor looked at the jar quizzically and asked, “What happened?”
The old man explained, “Well, doc, it’s like this – first I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing. Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then with her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing. We even called up Arleen – the lady next door – and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin’ it between her knees, but still nothing.”
The doctor was shocked
His eyes wide, the doctor asked, “Excuse me? You asked your neighbor?!?”
With a big smile, the old man replied, “Yep, none of us could get the jar open!”
He sure wasn’t ready for that one!
