Bubbies on a Bench
Shirley and Sadie, two elderly ladies in a senior’s residence in Miami were enjoying the sunshine on a bench outside their residence. This was their daily ritual on every sunny day for the past 9 years, chatting and enjoying each other's friendship.
One day Shirley turned to Sadie and said, "Please don't be angry with me, bubbaleh, but I am embarrassed after all these years. What is your name? I am trying to remember, but I just can't."
Sadie stared at her, looking very distressed, said nothing for two full minutes, and finally said, "How soon do you have to know?"
