Age Is A Funny Thing

Have you ever been guilty of looking at others your own age and thinking, “Surely I can’t look that old?” Well, You’ll love this one!

I was sitting in the waiting room for my first appointment with a new dentist. I noticed his, DDS, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 40-odd years ago. Could he be the same guy that I had a secret crush on, way back then?

Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was way too old to have been my classmate. Hmmm … Or could he?

After he examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended Morgan Park High School.

“Yes. Yes, I did. I’m a Mustang,” he gleamed with pride.

“When did you graduate?” I asked.

He answered, “In 1959. Why do you ask?”

“You were in my class!” I exclaimed.

He looked at me closely. Then, that ugly, old wrinkled SOB asked, “What did you teach?”

The Senior Special

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the “seniors’ special” was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $2.99.

“Sounds good,” my wife said. “But I don’t want the eggs.”

“Then, I’ll have to charge you three dollars and forty-nine cents because you’re ordering a la carte,” the waitress warned her.

“You mean I’d have to pay for not taking the eggs?” my wife asked incredulously.

“YES!!” stated the waitress.

“I’ll take the special then,” my wife said.

“How do you want your eggs?” the waitress asked.

“Raw and in the shell,” my wife replied. She took the two eggs home and baked a cake.
