    Childbirth at 65


    With all the new technology regarding fertility, a 65-year-old friend of mine was able to give birth. When she was discharged from the hospital and went home, I went to visit.



    'May I see the new baby?' I asked.



    'Not yet,' She said 'I'll make coffee and we can visit for a while first.'



    Thirty minutes had passed, and I asked, 'May I see the new baby now?'



    'No, not yet,' She said.



    After another few minutes had elapsed,



    I asked again, 'May I see the baby now?'



    'No, not yet,' replied my friend.



    Growing very impatient, I asked, 'Well, when can I see the baby?'



    'WHEN HE CRIES!' She told me.



    'WHEN HE CRIES?' I demanded. 'Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?'



    'BECAUSE I FORGOT WHERE I PUT HIM, O.K.??!!' :-?

    Interesting title to this thread....."Sometimes?" Personally, although I only did it once, I found that reaching 50 was much better than the alternative ;) I felt the same about 60 and hope to feel the same about 70 and 80 and.......... :)

    I'll let you know if lots of years.....probably ten after I hit 40 ;)
     
  7. How about:

    20: You get a choice of whether to play second baritone or BBb Bass.
