An elderly couple in their 90s are both having problems remembering things.
During a checkup, the doctor tells the couple that they’re physically OK, but they might want to start writing things down to avoid forgetting.
Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. “Want anything while I’m in the kitchen?” he asks.
“Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?”
“Don’t you think you should write it down so you can remember it?” she asks.
“No, I can remember it.”
“Well, I’d like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?”
He says, “I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.”
“I’d also like whipped cream. I’m certain you’ll forget that, write it down?” she asks.
Irritated, he says, “I don’t need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream — I got it, for goodness’ sake!” Then he toddles into the kitchen.
After about 20 minutes, the old man returns and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.
She stares at the plate for a moment.
“Where’s my toast?”
LOL! At least the couple is keeping themselves fed! SHARE if you enjoyed!

Life is complex enough in itself. Our duty is to make it as fun and pleasant as it can possibly be even in adversity. I believe, one must have sense of humor in order to carry through and lighten the burden of our every day mental stress. Otherwise, life’s trying times could drown us in self-pity and bitterness. Life is too short. To cry over spilled milk not only stalls you, but takes away the joy of our experience in life.
We are subjected to trivial and significant challenges every day. The way we choose to respond to them is what will make the difference. To certain extent one has the power to make the best out of the worst situation,. Just tackle it with a sense of humor. It’s sort of a reminder of the old adage that says, “If life throws you lemons, make yourself a lemonade.”
