Saturday Smile: Robbing the Cradle

I mentioned a few days ago that I spent an afternoon with Dagny and Magnolia geocaching. As we were walking through the park, somehow we got to talking about ages.

“How old are you, Nana?” asked Maggie.

I told her I was 61.

“How old is Papa?” Dagny asked.

“He’s 72,” I told them.

You should have seen the looks on their faces.


Dagny shocked

It must have been similar to the look on Jerry Lee Lewis’ mother’s face when the 22-year-old singer told her he was marrying his 13-year-old cousin. You would think Bill rivals Hugh Hefner.

“He’s so much older than you,” Dagny said in shocked horror.

“Not really,” I explained. He’s 11 years older, but when you’re our age, it really isn’t so outrageous. Now if 12-year-old Addie came home and said she was dating a 23-year-old, that would be cause for alarm.”

It took some persuading to convince them that Papa wasn’t robbing the cradle.

“When you see Papa and I together, does it seem weird?” I asked them.

They admitted it did not.

Still, here are Hugh Hefner and his girlfriend…..

Here are Bill and me……

It’s not so bad, is it?

Have a great weekend.

  1. I’ve decided I met you when you where 35. I don’t feel like your ages have ever changed. So, I must have always thought of you and Bill as 35/46 (weird). Now I feel old. I promise, I’ve also never thought of Bill as Hugh. Also weird. Happy Saturday.
