It started off as a fairly typical Saturday evening in the nursing home. The usual run of the mill game of bingo, followed by a sing-a-long afterwards.
An old man, who was feeling rather frisky, given his advanced years, looked over and said to the old lady sitting next to him, “I know just what you’re wanting! I will give you $5 if you let me have sex with you over there in that rocking chair”.
The old lady looked surprised, but she didn’t say a word and just kept rocking away in her chair.
Frustrated at her lack of response, the old man continued, “For $10 I’ll do it with you on that nice soft sofa over there”.
There was still no response from the old lady, so he went all in with his final offer. “For $20 I’ll take you back to my room, light some candles and give you the most romantic evening you’ve ever had in your life”.
The old lady still said nothing, but after a couple of minutes, she started digging down in her purse.
She pulled out a wrinkled $20 bill and held it up to the old man.
His eyes lit up at this. “So you want the nice romantic evening in my room”, the old man asked her.
“Get serious”, she replied. “I want it four times in the rocking chair”.
And here I thought life in the nursing home consisted of watching television, playing bingo, line dancing and dodging puddles of pee. Maybe it’s not so bad after all.
