Almost Speechless

During my visit to the retirement center today, I stopped in on a young soul in her early 90's. We talked about many things. Here's one story she told me that tickled my funny bone. She told me of the time her mother suffered a stroke. Afterwards, her mother couldn't speak very well. The one thing she could say was "Shit." So, a woman who never seemed to cuss when my friend was young, cussed like a fiend after her stroke because that's all she could say and she thought it was funny. It's good to know that we don't lose our sense of humor with age.
