    All I Want For Christmas…

    | Denver, CO, USA | Golden Years, Marriage & Partners, Top

    (It’s Christmas season, and I’m shopping in a department store. An elderly couple is also shopping nearby. The woman goes off to look at something in a different section. The gentleman sneezes.)

    Me: “Bless you.”

    Elderly Gentleman: *looks at his wife* “It’s already been done.”

    A Twisted Marriage

    | PA, USA | Golden Years, Marriage & Partners

    (The family is gathered around the table for Thanksgiving dinner. My mom is having an argument with my dad.)

    Mom: “And you! After thirty years, you’ve got some kind of switch that lets you shut out everything I say!”

    Dad: “Of course. Haven’t you ever seen me twist my wedding ring?”

    Loved You Since The Day I Met You

    | USA | Flirting/How We Met, Golden Years, Marriage & Partners, Top

    (My grandmother has Alzheimer’s. She often thinks she is unmarried and only in her 20s. When told otherwise, she usually responds in very humorous or sweet fashions.)

    Grandma: “He was the handsomest man!”

    Aunt: “[Grandpa] was?”

    Grandma: “Oh, yes! All the girls wanted to dance with him when he was home on leave.”

    Aunt: “You too, huh?”

    Grandma: “Me, especially!”

    Aunt: “[Grandpa], did you hear that?”

    Grandma: “Who’re you talking to?”

    Aunt: “Your husband!”

    Grandma: “[Grandpa]?”

    Aunt: “Yeah! Your husband!”

    Grandma: *scoffing* “I wish!”

    Aunt: “Well, go in the next room and see, if you don’t believe me. He’s watching the ball game.”

    Grandma: “[Grandpa]?”

    Grandpa: “Yeah? Whad’ya want?”

    (Grandma then rushes into the other room and throws herself into his lap for a kiss. She was so happy she couldn’t stop laughing and neither could the rest of us.)

    Can’t Sweet-Talk His Way Out Of This One, Part 2

    | USA | Engaged, Family/Kids, Golden Years

    (I am hanging out at my fiancé’s house, watching TV with his mom. He and his dad head out to the store for a while. When they come back my fiancé hands me a candy bar.)

    Me: “Sweet! I got chocolate! And I didn’t even have to do anything.”

    Fiancé: “Well, Dad made me get you something. He said I have to be extra romantic and treat you right because you’re such a lovely lady.”

    Mom: “Aw! That’s so sweet!”

    (My fiancé’s mom turns to the dad.)

    Mom: “Hey Babe, where’s my candy?”

    Dad: “Uh…”

    Mom: “Yeah, I thought so…”
