    "Old Friends" funny

    I just had to share this one!


    A group of 15 year old boys discussed where they should meet for dinner. It

    was agreed they would meet at McDonald's next to Captain Jack's Seafood

    Grill, because they only had six dollars among them; they could ride their bikes

    there and Jenny Webster, that cute girl in Social Studies, lived on the same

    street, and they might see her.



    Ten years later, the group of, now 25 year old guys, discussed where to meet

    for dinner. It was agreed they would meet at Captain Jack's Seafood Grill

    because the beer was cheap, the bar had free snacks, the house band was

    good, there was no cover charge, and lots of cute girls.



    Ten years later, at 35, the group once again discussed where they should meet

    for dinner. Once again, they decided it would be Captain Jack's Seafood Grill.

    The booze was good and it was close to the gym and, if they went late enough,

    there wouldn't be a gang of those noisy, whinny little kids.



    Ten years later, at 45, the group, still pals, once again discussed where they

    should meet for dinner. It was agreed upon they would meet at Captain Jack's

    Seafood Grill, because the martinis were big and the waitresses wore tight pants.



    Ten years later, now 55, the group, once again, discussed where they should meet

    for dinner. It was agreed upon they would meet at Captain Jack's Sea Food Grill

    because the prices were reasonable, they have a nice wine list, and fish is good

    for your cholesterol.



    Ten years later, at 65 years of age, the group once again discussed where they

    should meet for dinner. Again, it was agreed upon that they would meet at Captain

    Jack's Seafood Grill because they have good lighting and an early bird special.



    Ten years later, now 75 years old, the group once again discussed where they

    should meet for dinner. They agreed they would meet at Captain Jack's Seafood

    Grill because the food was not too spicy and the restaurant was handicapped

    accessible.



    Ten years later, at 85 years of age, the old friends meet once again to discuss where

    they should meet for dinner. It was unanimous: They decided to go to Captain Jack's

    Seafood Grill, because they had never been there before.

    I thought they would be going back to mcdonalds for morning cofee because it was daytime and inexpensive when they were 75.

    I agree that is too funny.

    Too funny. By the time I get up to my sewing room, I have to ask myself, "Now, what was I going to work on today?".
    Just have to think a little harder.

    Hilarious and it had me laughing out loud and that isn't easy these days with the weather we have had all winter. I am quite grumpy when I can't get out any time I please and that has been most of this miserable winter. So, again, thanks for a reason to laugh.

    Funny - I have yet to see a group of women hanging out for coffee there.

    Too true, you can't really appreciate it until you are 85 plus!
