(#1910) An old age problem (© David Minkoff)
Two elderly ladies, Miriam and Naomi, meet for the first time for many, many years and decide to catch up on things over a coffee and a bagel at Minky’s Kosher Snacks.
"So, Miriam," says Naomi, "it’s been a long time. How have you been getting on?"
"Oy, Naomi," replies Miriam, "you shouldn’t have asked me that question. I think old age is terrible. I’m 75 years old and I’m 5 foot 3 inches tall. Yet when I was in my twenties, I was nearly 5 foot 6 inches tall."
"I know exactly how you feel," says Naomi. "When I was twenty-one, I was 5 foot 5 inches tall. But now I’m nearing eighty, I’m only 5 foot 2 inches tall. Old age really sucks."
Miriam and Naomi do not know that sitting right behind them is Rabbi Levy. As he gets up to leave, Rabbi Levy says to them, "Ladies, I wish you long life. Please God you should both live to 4 foot eleven inches tall."
