Where to Have Lunch

September 2021.  A good friend of my husband Bryan sent this, and I know that you will all love it.  (Psst, this is the one I wrote about to the chat group.)  Cheers from Liz Webfoot: 

A group of friends, all turning 40, discussed where they should meet for lunch……finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Boot and Flogger in London because the waitresses had big breasts and wore mini-skirts……. 

Ten years later, at age 50, the friends once again discussed where they should meet for lunch……..finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Boot and Flogger in London because the waitresses were attractive and the food and service was good….. 

Ten years later, at age 60, the friends again discussed where they should meet for lunch….finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Boot and Flogger in London because they could dine in peace and quiet with no loud music, and it was good value for money……

Ten years later, at age 70, the friends again discussed where they should meet for lunch……finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Boot and Flogger in London because they welcomed the older generation and gave them a 10% discount….. 

Ten years later, at age 80, the friends discussed again where they should meet for lunch…..finally it was agreed that they would meet at the Boot and Flogger in London because they had never been there before………

FOUR HUSBANDS

     The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband’s occupation. “He’s a funeral director,” she answered.

     “Interesting,” the newsman thought.

     He then asked her if she wouldn’t mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her 20’s, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40’s, and a preacher when in her 60’s, and now – in her 80’s – a funeral director.

     The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers.

                   R E A L L Y    W A I T   F O R   I T

 

     She smiled and explained,

     “I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go.”
