Today's sign I'm getting older

So, there I was in the fitness center this morning, after completing my workout, chatting with a couple of friends, one of whom is off to Amsterdam for her first trip. She's going for business, to close a very nice deal, and one of her business associates suggested that in celebration she get herself a pot brownie. This sort of scandalized my very nice friend and led to me making the following observation:

You know you're getting old, and I feel like I am all the time, when you kindly respond to the offer of a pot brownie by saying: gosh, thanks, but I'm on a low carb diet and I really can't eat that.

Water came out of my friend's nose. A successful snarf.

I have a friend who used to know the precise moment when I was swollowing to get water to snort out of my nose. That was a painful year. :)

Great one liner RP! :)

If I was drinking, it would come out my nose too, after that!

I'm so very relieved that I finished eating lunch before reading this.
