Sunnyside Up July 30, 2016

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

Grumpy gusThe residents of Sunnyside assisted living center live in small apartments, but eat in the central cafeteria.

One morning, Joe didn’t show up for breakfast so I went upstairs and knocked on his door to see if  everything was OK.

I could hear him through the door and he said he was running late and would be down shortly.

An hour later Joe still hadn’t arrived in the dining room so I went to check on him again.  I met him halfway down the stairs, with a death grip on the handrail; he was having a hell of time getting his legs to work right.

“Joe, I’m going to call an ambulance.”

“No, no, don’t do that.  I’m not in any pain.  I’m hungry and just want to have some breakfast.”

So I helped him the rest of the way down the stairs and into the dining room.

After he finished eating, he tried to return to his room but was unable to get up even the first step.  At that point, he agreed to let us call an ambulance.

Mickey-OKAn hour later, we called the hospital to see how Joe was doing.

The receptionist said, “Oh, he’s fine.  Nothing serious.  He just had both of his legs in one leg of his boxer shorts.”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Been there, done that.

nrhatch - July 30, 2016

With all the instructional videos on youtube, I wonder if there’s a how to on pulling on your boxers . . . one leg at a time?

Tippy Gnu - July 30, 2016

If not, maybe I’ll make one.

nrhatch - July 30, 2016

What to do . . . and what NOT to do!

5. L. Marie - July 30, 2016

Ha ha! I stuck both legs in one pant leg once.

nrhatch - July 30, 2016

Life overflows with challenges, eh?

6. joannesisco - July 30, 2016

Bahahahaha!! Thanks for the laugh! I didn’t see this one coming!

nrhatch - July 30, 2016

Glad you enjoyed!

… Dear God, please do not let me get to this stage become the focus of other people’s jokes!
… Note to self – avoid boxers and keep wearing thongs for safety.
Thanks Nancy,

nrhatch - July 30, 2016

Yes . . . a thong is just the thing!

8. Patricia - July 30, 2016

Silly, but did make me smile.

nrhatch - July 30, 2016

Glad to hear it, Patricia.

9. Tiny - July 30, 2016

This confirms boxer shorts can be dangerous for elderly. I’ll need to tell hubs 😂

nrhatch - July 31, 2016

Yes. As Val noted . . . thongs are safer. 😀

Lol! Poor Joe 😀 He’d be hopping like a kangaroo 😉

nrhatch - August 1, 2016

Maybe that’s how Captain Kangaroo got his name!

11. Debra - August 1, 2016

I don’t know whether “poor Joe” applies or not. Clothing malfunctions even happen to high profile entertainers. 🙂

nrhatch - August 1, 2016

Haha! Yes indeed. With “parts iz parts” flipping and flopping around in the breeze to thunderous applause and raucous laughter!
