Two friends meet after several years..

Is that you? I haven't seen you for years! I, was just thinking about you, remember us in high school? Wow, I can't believe how the time just flew by..Look at us now, silver hair, a wrinklle here and there....Oh hell, a face like a road map, with highways carved in it..ha-ha. Can, you believe we turned into those old folks we use to talk about? Would ya, like to go for a spot of tea, Gertie Mae? Listen to us it is tea now..not coke!

Well, you really look good Gertie Mae...What's that you say? Speak up can't hear ya...Ohhhhhhh, you said I do too...Well, thank you, Gertie Mae!, Well
now that we both told lies h-ha....Ya, know we both look like hell! hee-hee.. Well, we don't really, we still are sort of pretty ha-ha....

I'm not too bad just too much baggage under my eyes makes it hard to see....Too, much baggage behind me too, looks like a dang train coming through ha-ha....I've become a little slower these days...I have to walk with this old cane...One good thing though, about my cane is if anyone goes to rob me, or hurt me...Well I'll, just beat them to death with it ha-ha...Ahhhhhhhhh, Gertie Mae, where did the time go?...where did it go?...I, feel so damn old...So damn old!

But, wait not that dang old....Are those two spiffy men looking at us? Speak up... I can't hear you Gertie Mae....Huh?..What did ya say? Ohhhhhhh,
ya said they are...No, need to scream Gertie, I can hear ya! Ohhhhh, no! what the Sam hill, is this? What a dirty trick my eyes played on me....I, won that old man 50 years ago...Yep, sure did..Dang, I thought he was someone different flirting with me....Oh, well!...Gertie Mae, remind me to get some new glasses...with these old eyes he even looked cute! hee-hee...

Gertie Mae, stop, saying stop it to me..
stop laughing at me..I'm being serious Gertie, ha,ha,ha...I, may be old, but I'm sure not dead! ha.

Your a hoot Gertie Mae, a real old hoot ha-ha...So, nice to see you again my friend, so nice..

Hey Gertie, ya still walk with that dang wiggle....You, still got it girl! hee-hee..Go, on with your bad old self ha-ha..

Hey Gertie, follow me walk like this
wiggle, wiggle, wiggle that's it girl, lets go have our spot of tea..Let's go melt some hearts! ha, ha, tee, hee.
