Old Couples Become Divorced From Reality

| Scotland, UK | Golden Years

(I am talking to my grandfather.)

Grandpa: “Aye, marriage is hard. There were many times I would have divorced your Grandma over the years.”

(Granny walks in, and I feel awkward considering what my Grandpa has just said.)

Grandma: “What are you two talking about?”

(I start to think of a lie to tell her, when my Grandpa repeats what he said.)

Grandma: “Pfft! I would have divorced you first!”

Grandpa: “No, you wouldn’t.”

(They proceed to argue about who would have divorced who first, despite the fact they’ve been happily married more than 40 years.)
