George is also a solid citizen at age 28, and has a similar criminal record to mine. If my mother were to reach the behavioral status of her mother, she would have to do it on her own, without using George as a foil.
Well, the other day, she finally did it.
While in her doctor's office for a routine check up, the doctor commented how well Lonnie was doing, and how she didn't look nearly her age (she doesn't). With this, Lonnie said to the doctor,
"Doctor, I know I'm in pretty good shape, I feel well, and I've had a very full life. But there's one thing I've missed you can help me with. I'm 85 years old, and I've never tried pot. I want you to give me a script for medical marijuana. I want to have a pot party, and you're invited."
The doctor almost needed a doctor to help catch her breath, as she couldn't ease her laughter. The nurses came to her aid, and to witness the commotion, as the laughter went viral through the rest of the office.
All Lonnie could say to this, with a straight face, was "OK, you're all invited."
