Joke of the Day – January 2: Golden Years
What was it you said, again?
There were two elderly people living in a Florida mobile home park. He was a widower, and she was a widow. They had known each other for a couple years.
One evening there was a community supper in the activity center. The two were at the same table, across from one another. As the meal went on he made a few admiring glances, and finally got the courage to ask her, “will you marry me?”
“Yes I will,” the lady answered.
The meal ended and after a few more pleasant exchanges the two went to their respective places.
The next morning the elderly man was troubled. He couldn’t remember if she said yes or if she said no. With trepidation he went to the phone and called her. First he explained that he didn’t remember as well as he once did. He was very forgetful. Then he reviewed the lovely evening. As he gained a little more courage he then inquired, “when I asked you to marry me, did you say yes or did you say no?”
He was delighted to hear her say, “why, I said yes, yes I will. And I meant it with all my heart,” she said. Then she continued, “and I’m so glad you called. I couldn’t remember who asked me.”
