Two Senior Moments

While we were at the garden on Saturday, each of my children said something funny. Both were in regard to an elderly person.

Snapper was first.

We are walking along the path, admiring the tulips, when Snapper notices a group of senior citizens walking toward us. Without missing a beat she hollers at the top of her lungs, "LOOK OUT FOR THOSE OLD PEOPLE!"

The "old" people apparently got a kick out of that, because they all laughed heartily. They weren't the only ones who heard Snapper, though. About 30 feet down the path, two women were sitting on a bench. As we passed them, one of them said, laughing, "Look out for us! We're old too!" They proceded to comment on how cute Snapper is, and how funny, and how adorable. I'm sure glad everyone else thought that was funny and cute and adorable, because I'm still trying to convince myself that it was. Oh fine, I guess it was. Ha ha!

Not 10 minutes later, we pass another group of senior citizens. One man was walking with the assistance of a cane. Pepper walks up to him and says, "You must be a shepherd!" Now THAT is funny! The "shepherd" thought so, too.
