Saturday evening Mass at our parish brings out a lot of us who are on canes and walkers, it seems. We were getting ready to leave on Saturday and a guy we kind of know walked past us on a cane and said, “Man, getting old sucks.”
“Yeah, but it beats the alternative,” I said.
“You’re right,” he said. “I don’t even mind the pain anymore. Way I see it, if it ain’t hurtin’, it ain’t workin’!”
Thus we have today’s one-liner. It’s a good thing to remember. The stroke taught me the value of life, and never to take anything (your life, your health, etc.) for granted. Happy Thanksgiving!
One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you by Linda Hill and this station.
