Funny Story of a Lost Elder

When I have lunch today, I saw an old gentleman sitting on a park bench cry his heart out. I stopped and asked him what was the problem.

He said, 'I have a 22 year old spouse at home. She rubs my back every morning and then gets up and makes me pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit and freshly ground coffee.'

I inquired, 'Well, then why are you crying?'

He added, 'She makes me homemade soup for lunch and my preferred biscuits, washes the house and then watches sports TV with me for the rest of the afternoon.'

I supposed, 'Well, why are you crying?'

He said, 'For dinner she makes me a gourmet meal with wine and my favorite dessert and then we cuddle until the small hours.'

I asked, 'Well then, why in the world would you be crying?'

He answered, 'I can't remember where I live.'
