Getting old
« on: January 14, 2017, 04:07:13 pm »
A senior citizen said to his eighty-year old buddy:
'So I hear you're getting married?'
'Yep!'
'Do I know her?'
'Nope!'
'This woman, is she good looking?'
'Not really.'
'Is she a good cook?'
'Naw, she can't cook too well.'
'Does she have lots of money?'
'Nope! Poor as a church mouse.'
'Well, then, is she good in bed?'
'I don't know.'
'Why in the world do you want to marry her then?'
'Because she can still drive.'
Best wishes,

Duncan

 ;D Ah, the little things...
If it's not used by a native speaker it's not idiomatic. And idiom trumps grammar every time. Jack Wilkerson†
