house together. One evening, the 96 year old sister went
upstairs to take a bath. As she put her foot into the
tub, she paused. Then she yelled down to the other two
sisters and asked, "Was I getting in the tub or out?"

"Was I going up the stairs or down?"
The 92 year old sister was sitting at the kitchen table
drinking a cup of tea and thought, "I hope I never get
that forgetful, knock on wood." She shook her head and
called out, "I'll be up to help you both as soon as I
see who's at the door."
