Why Don’t You Do Something Useful?

My friend, who retired in Boquete in the Panamanian mountains sent me this funny impression of the future. Enjoy.

Yesterday my daughter again asked why I didn’t do something useful with my time.

Talking about my “doing something useful” seemed to be her favorite topic of conversation.
She was “only thinking of me” and suggested I go down to the senior center and hang out with the guys.

I did this and when I got home last night I decided to teach her a lesson about staying out of my business:-
I told her that I had joined a parachute club.

She said, “Are you nuts? You ‘re almost 72 years old and you ‘re going to start jumping out of airplanes?”
I proudly showed her that I even got a membership card.

Upon a closer look she said to me in distress, “Good grief, wear are your glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club.”

Oh dear I said “I’m in trouble again, and I don’t know what to do … I signed up for five jumps a week.”

She fainted.
Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier, but sometimes it can be fun.
