Sometimes we get a bit forgetful....
« on: Feb 12, 2020, 01:05:19 PM »

An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. . . I would recommend it very highly.'
The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?'
The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know... The one that's red and has thorns.'
'Do you mean a rose?'
'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man.
He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled,
'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?
Ha ha, charade you are...

Me too.  A friend and I have long conversations giving each other clues as to who we are talking about. It's like those games on TV where some has the name or picture of something/someone and has to get another person to guess who or what it is without saying the name.

I thought the joke was funny but I doubt if I will remember it long enough to tell anyone. Funnily enough a rose is one of those things with holes in that you stick on a watering can, and I've got a head like one of those.
