Retarded Grandparents         Getting Old(er)   /   Back Home

Thanks to Mary Lou for sending this one!

                       (this was actually reported by a  teacher) 

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how  they spent their holiday away from school. 

One child wrote the  following: 

We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma  and Grandpa. 

They used to live in a big brick house but  Grandpa got retarded  and they moved to Arizona .


Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like grass. 

They ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags 
because they don't know who they are anymore. 

They go to  a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it fixed because  it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they don't do them very  well. 

There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it  with hats on.. 

At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man  sitting in it. He watches all day so nobody can escape. 

Sometimes they  sneak out, and go cruising in their golf carts. 

Nobody there cooks, they  just eat out.  And, they eat the same thing every night --- early birds. 

Some of the people can't get out past the man in the doll  house. 

The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked center for  pot luck. 

My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his  retardment and says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday  too.. 

When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll  house. Then I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren.


                      .... PRICELESS


     Forward to all your "retarded grandparent" friends!
