Old Gal With Her Five Boyfriends
Us old folks are worth a fortune now with silver in our hair, gold in our teeth, stones in our kidneys, lead in our feet, and gas in our stomachs.
I have become a little older since my last post, and a few changes have come to my life since then.
Frankly, I have become quite a frivolous old gal.
I am seeing five gentlemen daily.
As soon as I wake up, Will Power helps me get out of bed.
Then I go see John.
Then Charlie Horse comes along, and when he is here, he takes a lot of time and attention.
When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of the day.
He doesn’t like to stay in one place very long, so he takes me from joint to joint.
After such a busy day, I’m really tired and glad to go to bed with Ben Gay.
Oh what a life!
The preacher came to visit me the other day and he told me I should be thinking about “the hereafter.”
So I said, “Oh, I do, all the time! No matter where I am … in the living room, upstairs, in the kitchen or down in the basement … I ask myself, “Now what am I here after?”
