Dad at the Mall

by Dianne

I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes (he is 66).

We decided to grab a bite at the food court.

I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him.

The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors - green, red, orange, and blue.

My dad kept staring at her.

The teenager kept looking and would find my dad staring every time.

When the teenager had had enough, she sarcastically asked:
"What's the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?"

Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not  choke on his response . . . I knew he would have a good one!

In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid . . .

"I got stoned once and had sex with a parrot. I was just wondering if you might be my kid."

Shirley As lovely as you look today in your yellow suit, isn't it time to take it off? I don't think we're goig near any public restrooms today.

Just_Lin said...

Dianne That was a cute joke. There are so many times that I come up with some really clever retort. The problem is that it comes to me about 4 hours too late.

Just_Lin said...

MO Well, you aren't very talkative today. Too cold?

Just_Lin said...

Tinka Having fun shopping today. I hope the weather is nice for you.

Just_Lin said...

Zona I want you to promise not to hurt anything today, mkay? I hope you're icing that knee.....with ice, not frosting. lol

J/LIN: I can't make that promise until 11:59pm..and even then I might be pushing will promise to TRY not to get hurt's that? I never thought of icing my knee with frosting!! Think that might work? LOL! Thank you..your comment really made me smile! :D

Evening all!

I was out and about today running around. So I am popping in to say Hi!

sacBarb said...

Very funny Dianne. Thanks for the laugh.

sacBarb said...

Shirley, Are we in toxic danger again?

Hey Mo, tell us what you really feel about winter.

Tinka, There are so many cute things out for Valentine's Day. I am not doing Valentine's Day this year. I have all the stuff to make cards, but its not going to happen.

Zona, The speech must be done by now. How did it go?

J/L, I hope your cold is all gone and you are feeling better.

Lynn, I was out and about today too, but not running.

Just_Lin said...

This is in line with Zona's blog yesterday (and Michael's the day before). I was on my phone responding to an email and I was telling someone that I was going to pop into the store quickly. Fortunately, I read it back to myself before sending because I typed that I was going to poo in the store quickly. LOL

Maureen said...

Good evening feathered friends!

SAC BARB...I think my avatar sums it up perfectly! It is 18* and snowy. I am soooooo over it! But not over seeing you post! So nice and warming!

JUST LIN...happy you didn't make that quick poo in the store!

Whitney Houston died today. Very sad, but not unexpected.
