What year did you say Grandson, 2015-
"No Grandpa, I said pass me the beans."
"Oh I'm sorry, here they are son"
But don't eat too many or they'll give you the runs"
"How old are you Grandpa, did you say you were eighty?"
"Yes my grandson, I used to go with the ladies."
"What!" Where are your hearing aids?"
"When you don't wear them your hearing fades,"
He said, "last night I put them in a cup that said "dentures."
"They were fizzing this morning but what an adventure."
"Oh Grandpa, what will make you alert?"
"You bet, he said, "I will take some dessert."
I said, "I love you Grandpa, do you love me too."
He said, "I've always loved your sister and you."
