From Wild Hair to Wider Grins
While we can never replace the incredible Jeanne Robertson, her legacy of laughter continues to inspire and uplift countless souls. The joy she brought into our lives lives on, and it’s our privilege to carry forward her mission of finding humor even in the most challenging moments. Jeanne taught us the art of seeing the funny side, even amidst stress, and now, we aim to spread that gift to others. Let the laughter live on…even in a nursing home.
Oh, you won’t believe the adventure I had when I visited my godmother/aunt at the nursing home recently! Picture this: I walk into this massive room with so many residents, and there she is, my dear aunt, looking like she just had a wild hair-raising ride on a roller coaster! Her hair was all over the place, like she just escaped from a tornado! So, you know me – I couldn’t resist being the hero and whipped out my trusty brush to fix her silver locks. Ta-da! Instant hair makeover!
And then, the funniest thing happened – she looks at me with those crystal blue eyes and asked, “Are you Ja-un?” “Yes, M’am! Remember, I’m your favorite niece, and you promised me a treasure trove of money one day!” Oh boy, her face lit up like the Fourth of July, and she let out the cutest chuckle! Mission accomplished: a sweet tea moment of laughter recaptured!
Then she starts asking about her long-lost sister Mary, who, by the way, has been in the land of departed souls for over ten years! I didn’t want to break her heart (and mine, for the 50th time), so I thought quick on my feet and replied, “No, M’am, I haven’t seen her lately.” And guess what she says? “That’s ’cause she’s dead!” Can you believe it? Straight to the point, no sugarcoating, she’s just putting it all out there!
Wrinkles of Joy
Oh boy, let me tell you about the endless hilarity I’ve experienced in nursing homes! One unforgettable incident happened when I was asked to sing for a group of Super Seniors. The performance went surprisingly well, and after I finished, this sprightly resident stood up ever so carefully and yelled, “Honey, you were so funny, I gave you a standing ovulation!” 🙈 Can you believe it? I was blushing like a ripe tomato, but it was a good laugh for everyone!
Now, brace yourself for this side-splitting gem: I once complimented an elderly resident, telling her how pretty she looked. And her response? Priceless! She went, “How could I? I just had my heart castrated!” 🤣 I couldn’t hold back the laughter – it was a classic case of words gone wild!
Oh, nursing homes are like comedy clubs in disguise, serving up humor and heartwarming moments on a silver platter! I wouldn’t trade these experiences for the world!
Oh, nursing home visits are never dull, that’s for sure! Auntie’s got some sass, and I’m loving every minute of it! Who knows what hilarity awaits me on my next adventure.
