When I teach the REALTOR Senior Advisor class with the Minneapolis Association of REALTORs, I usually throw in a few jokes to keep it fun. Keeping the attention of professionals who are used to constantly moving, and interacting with people is like trying to nail jello to a wall!
This one is a favorite:
SENIOR PERSONAL ADS
The following "Senior" personal ads seen in Florida and Arizona
newspapers: Who says seniors don't have a sense of humor?
FOXY LADY: Sexy, fashion-conscious blue-haired beauty, 80's slim,5'-4" (used to be 5-6), searching for sharp-looking, sharp-dressing companion. Matching white shoes and belt a plus.
LONG-TERM COMMITMENT: Recent widow who has just buried fourth husband looking for someone to round out a six-unit plot. Dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath not a problem.
SERENITY NOW: I am into solitude, long walks, sunrises, the ocean, yoga and meditation. If you are the silent type, let's get together, take our hearing aids out and enjoy quiet times.
WINNING SMILE: Active grandmother with original teeth seeking a dedicated flosser to share rare steaks, corn on the cob and caramel candy.
BEATLES OR STONES? I still like to rock, still like to cruise in my Camaro on Saturday nights and still like to play the guitar. If you were a groovy chick, or are now a groovy hen, let's get together and listen to my eight-track tapes.
MINT CONDITION: Male, 1922, high mileage, good condition, some hair, many new parts including hip, knee, cornea, valves. Isn't in running condition, but walks well.
MEMORIES: I can usually remember Monday through Thursday. If you can remember Friday, Saturday and Sunday, let's put our two heads together.
