There is an old saying that we are getting older, we are getting wiser. I believe that most of us would agree with that saying, but there is also some room for improvement. After all, when we get older, we may be a little wiser but we also tend to forget things and we may not be quite as quick as we were when we were younger. Perhaps that is why most of us really appreciate a joke about somebody in their senior years who is having a senior moment. That was the case with the woman in this joke, as she was having a discussion with an old friend and a senior moment struck.
Two elderly ladies, Maxine and Gilda, had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures.
Lately, with their declining physical fitness and somewhat slower mental capacity, their activities had been limited to playing cards a few times a week.
One day when playing cards, Maxine looked at Gilda and said, “Now don’t get mad at me. I know we’ve been friends a long time, but I just can’t think of your name. I’ve thought and thought, but I can’t remember it. Please remind me what your name is.”
Gilda glared at her friend. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared.
Finally she said, “How soon do you need to know?”
