For years I have looked at birthday cards that lampooned old people mis-hearing a conversation.
"It is Thursday?"
"Yes, I'm thirsty. Let's go get a drink."
That kind of thing. Well . . . it is happening. Get a group of 60-somethings together, and some very humorous conversations happen. Just a few from the last two days:
I asked Susan what John was doing. "He's checking out a few of the places to eat."
Betsy looked at me and said, "Oh, are we having Italian again?"
Susan and John were sitting in a booth with Don and me. As Susan was trying to get out of the booth, John and I heard her say, "I am trying to get my fat out." What she really said was, "I am trying to get my hat out." I was relieved someone else heard what I heard . . . but Susan was not real pleased.
We have had numerous conversations such as these. All we can do is laugh . . . but it is apparent that most of us have attended too many concerts and athletic events.
