The celebrity resident of my grandmother’s nursing home is a 101 year-old woman. The home had a Christmas party this past weekend. There was food, singing and finally, the nativity story. As the storyteller began, the tiny senior resident spoke up and loudly proclaimed, “Oh, that story again? I’ve heard that story so many times, I don’t care if I ever hear it again.”

  1. That is really funny!!
    My cousins have to do the nativity play at their aunts and uncles each year since they were babies and they are in their thirties now and they get mad at me for even asking if they still have to do it now… so I bet they feel the same way….

  2. Yep. They’re old. They’ve heard it a million times.

    And they get the same look like we do when we hear, “You know, in my day…” Or “Did I ever tell you about the time when I…”

    Yeah, only about a BAZILLION TIMES ALREADY!

  3. What’s bad is when they start corrrecting you.

    “No, the sheep were over on THIS side. Damn manger was drafty, too, and could they have cleaned it a bit?”
