I seriously appreciate older adults. Aside from my 4 year old niece, they are the most hilarious creatures I have come across. Today I've decided to share a story of something that actually happened the other day at work, it's just another reason for why I enjoy what I do (For those who don't know, I do activities in an assisted living facility).
Every week we have a social, which is a little get together for my residents. At this social, we typically bring lots of wine and some finger foods (the elderly like to party too, this makes me love them even more). It's normally the same thing week after week, but at this past social I overheard something that almost made me pee my pants.
All the residents were enjoying their wine and chit chatting. At this one table, there were 2 ladies who weren't really talking that much. In an effort to make conversation, the first lady looks at the second and says, "So you wear hearing aids too?" It was the most fabulous icebreaker I think I've ever heard in my entire life. I couldn't think of not sharing this one. Every single day is an adventure with my old folks. You just never know what'll come out of their mouths. Stay posted for more stories to come! If you enjoy it, leave me a comment and I'll post some more :)
