Out of the Mouths of Old People

December 11, 2008

I was sitting in a fundraising committee meeting this morning, tossing around a couple of ideas with my colleagues. "If we can afford it," I interjected, "I really think we should go for the glossy printed folders."

Without a moment's hesitation, the 78-year-old volunteer piped in...."Speaking of glossy--and this is off the record--there's a nudie pic of Jennifer Aniston in this month's GQ. She looks really good."

Silence.

"And she's forty," he continued.

"Well sure she does," I spit, "she hasn't had any babies."

He nodded. "You're right. That little b*tch Angelina waltzed along and stole 'em all. Right out from under her!"

I shook my head. "Actually Bill, Angelina stole the husband."

"And the babies."

Okay then! Meeting adjourned!

Bill is an idiot, but I do agree with his qualification of Angelina.
I can't stand her!

You have 78-year-old volunteers? That so reminds me of working at the Family History Library, except of course, without the nudie picture comment.

I love it! Hilarious! The guy is so funny.

You know I used to hate Angelina too, but then I listened to her in an interview and I like her a lot more. She's not so bad.

That's great, though. seriously.. Some of my best stories come from older people who say just whatever they want! :-)

Hahahahahahaha. That's really how much I laughed. I can't wait 'til I'm old. I WILL say anything that is on my mind and I WONT feel any amount of remorse for it. Go Bill!

I like Angela. She has it all. The bod, the man and the babies. Wait, ok, total bizatch!

Now, if I could stop having babies, maybe I could have a good bod. I have the man and kids. Hmmmm...
