Age Joke

Having recently passed my 56th birthday, I think I can safely post and chuckle along with this. Thanks to my friend Bruce for sending it along.

During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, "How do you determine whether or not an older person should be put in an old age home?"
"Well," he said, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup & a bucket to the person to empty the bathtub."
"Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup."
"No," he said. "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"

I must confess: I find myself wondering what will happen if/when my body starts to fail me. I was grateful for this funny item from Bruce.
