A Senior's Moment

A very self-important college freshman at a recent football game,

took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him

why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his own.

"You grew up in a different, actually almost primitive, world," the

student said loud enough for the whole crowd to hear. "We young

people today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking

on the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars...We even have nuclear

energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed

processing .and uh.."

Taking advantage of a pause for breath in the student's litany, the

"wizened" one said, "You're right, Son. We didn't have those things

when we were we invented them...... you arrogant

little s#*# head!! Now......what are you doing for the next generation??"

I love senior citizens

Thanks Bev. V.
