“How?” That’s what the Native Americans used to ask instead of saying “hello” directly. It led to better, downright scintillating conversation, if you want to know what I think. Now go on…answer the question: How? How are you?
A lot of people are under the mistaken impression that senior citizens cannot adapt to new technologies. As a retiree who uses all sorts of modern electronics, I think I owe it to those people to dispel their anti-Darwinian ideas in their entirety. It might come as a shock to them, but they’ll be better off in the long run if someone bursts their bubble now as opposed to later.
For example, when I got my new washing machine last year, I didn’t even read the owner’s manual and I figured out how to use both dials on the very first wash. The very first. It just goes to show you that we seniors are just as adaptable as any Galapagos tortoise. That story reminds me of a good dirty joke: What’s the difference between a woman and a washing machine? I forget the exact answer, but it’s the kind of answer that will make you laugh but is dirty at the same time.
Until next time!
