Day eight of the writing challenge gives us the prompt, “Damn!”

boob joke

 

Aging.  It happens to all of us.  But as my daughter says, growing up is optional.  I completely agree.

Yesterday my male co-worker came in with the story of the week.  He said that normally he’ll get his hair cut in the evening, but yesterday he had his first appointment during the day.

Walking in, he realized the lunch clientele was quite different from the regular evening crowd.  Soon he found himself seated directly next to two gray haired women who were most certainly in their mid-eighties.

The woman next to him was named Nancy.  Nancy’s equally elderly husband was stone silent, reading a newspaper by the door.

Talking as if my friend wasn’t even in the room, Nancy turned to her friend.  “Wanna hear a joke?” Her friend replied yes. Without any care as to who else was in the room, Nancy tells her joke.

“What did one boob say to the other boob?”

My co-worker held his breath so as not to ruin the moment.  Nancy’s husband remained glued to his newspaper.

“IF WE DON’T GET ANY DAMN SUPPORT AROUND HERE, PEOPLE WILL THINK WE ARE NUTS!”

Nancy’s husband remained glued to his newspaper.  The hairdresser blurted, “NANCY!” while my co-worker laughed out loud.

That’s my girl, that Nancy.  For her, growing up was indeed optional!
