They say laughter is the best medicine and I couldn’t agree more! I found this story on the internet and it sure highlighted my day. Every so often, it is not uncommon to forget things, or blank out on a name for places, people and pretty much anything.
This tends to occur more regularly with old age, but some things should not be forgotten, so when they are actually forgotten, its more a hilarious instance than an offensive one as you will see in this story.
An elderly couple was having dinner at another couple’s house. The food was great and the conversation was lively.
After the meal, one of the wives turned to the men and said, “You did the cooking, so it’s only fair we’ll do the dishes. Let’s do it the other way around next time, I just have to show you that special recipe.”
The wives left the table and went into the kitchen, talking and laughing.
The two men were still at the table, talking and drinking whiskey. One of them said, “Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.”
The other man said, “What was the name of the restaurant?”
The first man thought and thought.
After a while, he said, “Hmm… What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know… The one that is red and has thorns.”
“Do you mean a rose?”
“Yes, that’s the one,” replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, “Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to last night?”
Do not forget to share this hilarious story with your family and friends and make their day!
