I wasn't sure where to post this, because it's not so much funny, as cute and seemed appropriate for a cooking forum.

Yesterday I found the following in the wastebasket at my hairdressers.

Sung to the tune of "These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things."

Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
Polidant and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a fee of my favorite things.

When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
When the knees go bad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heating pads, and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin',
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
When we remember our favorite things.

When the joints ache, When the hips break,
When the eyes grow dim,
Then I remember the great life I've had,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Good one Z. Here's another one about older folks. Got it from FB.

Appreciation of loud Music

Life just gets better as you get older doesn't it. I was in a Starbucks Coffee recently when my stomach started rumbling and I realized that I desperately needed to fart. The place was packed but the music was really loud so to get relief and reduce embarrassment I timed my farts to the beat of the music. After a couple of songs I started to feel much better. I finished my coffee and noticed that everyone was staring at me. I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my Ipod.

This is what happens when old people start using technology.

Zereh, I'm afraid I was born at "that age".


Here's a good one for everybody, but especially PF.



It's official: I have everything!

PF, what gives you the idea I have only ONE crazy friend?

When my SIL and I used to go on our "girls' week" we did some things that I'm surprised we didn't end up in jail.
