e-Mails That People Send ME From THEIR Mothers

From JCLady’s mom-

 The Bathtub  Test

During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, “How do you
determine whether or not an older person should be put in a Care Home?”

“Well,” he said, “we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a
teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the person to empty the bathtub.”

“Oh, I  understand,” I said. “A normal person would use the
bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup.”

“No” he  said. “A normal person would pull the plug. Do you
want a bed near a window?”

    And my mom thought the bucket was the right answer.

    I’m in trouble!

    Congress should have asked Hillary this question.

    Although she probably would have answered, “It doesn’t make a difference.”

    A window on the west side please. I like to sleep in and don’t like the morning sun.

    Went for my routine checkup today and everything seemed to be going fine until he stuck his index finger up my butt!

    I think I’ll just be a pain in the rear to my offspring. My answer was “Why on earth would I be messing about with bathtubs when I only take showers?”

    My mom doesn’t have this kind of humor. She just calls to harass me about flu shots and vitamins.

    Me, too, sablegsd. But she used to send me a lot of jokes like this. She had a better sense of humor than I do.

    At first glance, I thought the “Bathtub Test” was seeing if Gramps can get in and out of the bathtub without falling.

    Of course, a spritz or two of olive oil on the edges speeds things along nicely. :evil:
