Want to be entertained? Hire the elderly!

One of the great things about Facebook is that I have reconnected with quite a few people from high school.  And this time “Chuck” and one of his commenters gave me a laugh that I just had to share:

Chuck has always been quite the talker (as I remember he was on the debate team in high school) — a very interesting person — and I can totally picture this happening to him.

Chuck posted:

“SO…we are sitting in the noisy German restaurant at EPCOT — family style. The couple next to us say they live in Palm Harbor, but are really Dutch. I talked for 5 minutes about my trips to Holland (visitng Corinne, Mark, and Mariek) and my good friends there.

“Then we go through the buffet line.  During lunch, I started talking about the historic district and the great museums in Amsterdam, and the guy casually mentions, ‘We are Oregon DUCKS — not Dutch.'”

“I felt a bit silly, but laughed out loud. They had no clue why!”

Chuck’s commenter put the “frosting on the cake”:

“You must be discovering that people are very understanding of the elderly!”
