Lately, as they had got older, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.
One day, while they were playing cards, one elderly lady looked at the other and said, “Now please don’t get mad at me. I know we have been friends for a long time, but I just can’t think of your name! I’ve thought and thought, but I can’t remember it. Please tell me what your name is”.
Her friend glared at her.
For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her.
Finally she said, “How soon do you need to know?”
