I dearly love my son-in-law Jade.
Man pretty, huh?
I also adore his mom.
Most of you know Ruby from our escapades.
She even has a place in my archives.
She shares a birthday with her sweet son.
A few days after her birthday
I invited her to "Mexico" for a birthday fiesta.
I invited our Little Theater pals
to be in place to surprise her
with their gag gifts in tow.
I picked her up and she had forgotten our date.
I know, seriously.
FYI #1, memory loss is a sign of old age.
We arrived and she thought
it was a coincidence they were there.
FYI #2, confusion is a sign of old age.
We got the party started with an ornery waiter on hand.
He brought out the menus and the head gear.
We opened the gag gifts.
The first two she liked.
See FYI #2.
FYI #3 if you buy an old lady purse
as a gag gift,
consider the recipient's age.
She may fit the criteria of old making it no longer a gag.
The waiter brought out the beverages.
Some of us got ice water.
Some of us got the house margaritas
served in punch bowls.
I personally do not care for a vat of heartburn.
We used the hat and played
"Who Wore It Better?"
To say we were loud is an understatement.
But, it was a party.
FYI #4, the elderly are hard of hearing.
The waiter brought out a
Ruby, being the brave one
instantly neti potted it.
Yup, right down the hatch and
out through her nose.
It was awesome.
We had lots of laughs.
But all good things come to an end.
The birthday girl donned her gag gift scarf
grabbed her beloved gag gift purse
and I took the old gal home.
It was nearing 8 pm.
FYI #5 the elderly need their rest.
