We seem to spend the majority of our time with those who are much older than us, and I kind of prefer it that way. I’ve always had more in common with the elderly; things like going to bed early, being hard of hearing, and getting indigestion for no apparent reason.
Last night, we met up with several people from church to play Dominoes. There were two couples and a sister, all in their seventies and eighties. After an enjoyable dinner, we gathered around a small table and began playing. Their rules were a little different than ours, but we managed to keep up fairly well.
One might be inclined to think that such an evening would be, for lack of a better word, boring. It was far from it. We laughed constantly as one of the men kept trying to cheat, one lady couldn’t seem to figure out the rules, and another always went out with so many pieces that she couldn’t add up all the points without help. Honey literally laughed so hard that he almost blacked out!
Surprisingly, they kept me up far past my usual bedtime and I’m beginning to think that older people have really got the whole “fun” thing figured out.
