A Senior Moment

Sutton Coldfield, United Kingdom

Artist's Description






W & N watercolor on Bockingford watercolor paper 12″ × 9″

Once a week I run a painting workshop for senior citizens. My students are enthusiastic, lively and say it as it is. When I came across this piece of writing on the web I new I would have to create something for it and share it with you. Enjoy!!

You’ve just got to love this senior moment!!!!
Link to reference

A very self-important college freshman was attending a recent football game. He took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

‘You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one,’ the student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. ‘The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars. We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing, and….,’ pausing to take another drink of beer.

The Senior took advantage of the break in the student’s litany and said, ’You’re right, son. We didn’t have those things when we were young…. so we invented them.

Now, you arrogant little shithead what are you doing for the next generation?’

The applause was deafening. I just love senior citizens!!!
