Overheard in the Office

One of our patients keeps us updated on her 90 year old mother's various adventures and her love life.  Yes, you read that right.  The nonagenarian widow had a younger boyfriend.  Here then is a recent conversation she related to us that I found too funny not to share.

90: I need a new dancing partner now that my younger boyfriend died.

Daughter: Ma, you're not only a cougar, you're a black widow!  This is the third man you've buried!  I think it's time you start hanging out with your girlfriends.

90: Honey, you know as well as I do there's nothing quite like a man's companionship.

Daughter: Yeah, but you keep killing them!

90: Well, at my age there's no such thing as a long term relationship.

Okay. Now that is an interesting point of view. I find myself rather at a loss of words.

Ha! Mom sounds like a hoot! Good for her that she is enjoying her life and not settling like so many to spend their upper years moldering away at home waiting for life to come to them.

". . .there's nothing quite like a man's companionship."

But I do get that (uh, mutatis mutandis, of course. . .)

"Mutatis mutandis?"

Craig, what does the Lion King song have to do with anything? ;-)

Craig said...

Aww, man, Craver. . . I get just a teensy bit high-brow for two seconds. . .

But hey, no worries. . .

She should hook up with Hef!

Bijoux said...

I like G-Man's idea!

Craig said...

@G-Man & Bijoux - so, are you saying you want her to kill off HH?

Just, you know, wanting to be clear. . .
