True Love or What?

Laughter is the best medicine and we do get a lot of that (best medicine) from jokes on seniors. Of course, no offence to anyone. Below is one more and if you want another, go over to Mick's Page for another dose after that.

Elderly John was invited to Mark's home (his old friend) for dinner one evening.

John was impressed by the way his buddy preceded every request to his wife with endearing terms such as Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, Cookie, Pumpkin, etc.

The couple had been married almost 65 years and, clearly, they were still very much in love.

While Mark's wife was in the kitchen, John leaned over to Mark and said, 'I think it's wonderful that, after all these years, you still call your wife those loving pet names.'

Old Mark hung his head. 'John, I have to tell you the truth,' he said, 'Her name slipped my mind about 10 years ago and I'm scared to death to ask her what it is!'


  1. i thought couples usually don't call each other by their names but stuff like honey, darling, baby, etc. :p

    i guess it's precisely because of this non-usage that can cause one's partner's name to slip right out of one's mind eventually :p

    Very funny ...

    He calls me those too. I need to go and ask him whether he still knows my real name ..

    Wait!! What's HIS real name again??

  3. gosh, this one is funny! u sure have a collection of funny jokes - nice :)

  4. MB, you do have a point there - both counts. Non-usage can lead to it being forgotten.

    Andie, LOL!

    QC, glad you enjoyed this. Yes, I do have great sources. If you read my archive, you'd get more laughs. Enjoy! I won't be responsible for your sides aching though. ;)
