It’s often said, “Age is just a number.” However, when you’re the one who is getting older, it may be a different story as the years go by. When you age, your body loses some of its vitality and your bodily functions no longer happen as smoothly as before.

In your youth, you hardly feel any aches or pains. However, when you’re already a senior citizen, it goes without saying that you sometimes feel your bones creaking and some of your body functions no longer happening normally.

Of course, there are ways to “delay” aging. However, getting old is still inevitable. This is the fact that three elderly women have embraced — with much good humor. Because, really, when aging happens, laughter may be the best way to deal with it.

Age is just a number, but good humor never gets old.

Three elderly women are talking about their troubles.

“Sixty is the worst age to be,” said Ruth, the 60-year-old, “You always feel like you have to pee. And most of the time nothing happens.”

“Ah, that’s nothing,” said the 70-year-old, Maxine. “When you’re 70, you don’t have a bowel movement anymore. You take laxatives, eat bran, you sit on the toilet all day and nothing happens.”

“Actually,” said Gilda, the 80-year-old, “Eighty is the worst age of all.”

“Do you have trouble peeing too?” asked Ruth.

“No, I pee every morning at 6 a.m. I pee like a racehorse; no problem at all.”

“Do you have trouble with your bowel movements?” Maxine questioned.

“No, I have one every morning at 6:30 a.m,” Gilda responded.

Puzzled with this, Ruth said, “Let’s get this straight. You pee every morning at 6 a.m. and poop every morning at 6:30 a.m. So what’s so tough about being 80?”

“I don’t wake up until 7.”

When we get to be their age, we wish we would still be as good-humored as they are. Badly-timed body functions be damned.
