When the joke’s on you 10



View Profile

Turning 60 two years ago, I took a lot of good-natured ribbing from family and friends. So as my wife’s 60th birthday approached, I decided to get in some needling of my own. I sat her down, looked deep into her eyes, then said I had never made love to anyone who was over 50 years old.

“Oh, well, I have,” she deadpanned. “It’s not that great.”

  1. I think you have a typo Rebecca and it should read “I had never made love to anyone who was over 60 years old, not 50 years old.

  2. My partner is 10 years younger than me. When I recently turned 65 – he commented to friends “I’m about to find out what its like to sleep with a superannuitant”!!!

  3. Love it Linda Burrowes.
    My husband said something similar when I turned 50. He was 2 years younger and when I said “How do you feel having a wife who is 50?” His answer was “it’s exciting I have never made love to a 50 year old lady before”.
    Some of my friends thought it a disgusting thing to say, I thought it was lovely.

  4. Think it should have read making love to someone over 60! Not 50! LOL. At 60, we have way more experience anyway…….
