Retirement Home Drama

It‘s exciting! Being voted most popular resident-of-the-year, but at an unfortunate compromise with Henri, the retirement home ladies man. What a stud, that sparkly diamond earring on his left earlobe.

Victory appears inevitable, as you charmingly sashay throughout the dining room collecting votes. However, the choir ladies remain loyal to Henri – damn his white denture smile; you need every vote!

Winning at any cost – your life motto – you pull Henri aside. “Listen, you old swinger, step out from the race…I’ll indulge in your naughty voyeur fantasy game. Give a ring on the bell and remember, take your heart medications!”

    I so enjoy older people (I’m almost there – or maybe already there). Anyway, Henri sounds like fun and most retirement homes serve Happy Hour -as well as they should! Go Henri, Go! Nan

      that’s good to know about retirement homes having Happy Hour, Nan. i imagine it would be something enjoyable to look forward to at the end of the day or week. Henri would thrive…ha-ha.

      Rochelle, i love when our stories trigger memories from our past. sometimes senior folks can surprise everyone especially when, as you say, are energetic and “fireballs!” i know of a 86 year old young lady that volunteers. she wipes me out sometimes.

      thank you kindly.

    Ahihihi Retirement home drama. You gave it an idea. They need to have a Reality TV Show for a retirement home too. How exciting that could be. 😀
