Huckleberries Online

Parting Shot — 3/7/06

Being old ain’t so bad, particularly when you’re being sexually harassed by a caller. Ask Frum Helen Back. A few weeks ago, an obscene caller dialed FHB’s number and was in the middle of his spiel, when Helen started dishing it back to him. She was enjoying herself, too. Helen: “The guy was getting so angry and becoming more obscene. I kept telling him to tell me more and he finally got so mad he slammed down the phone and hasn’t called back.” Incredibly, Helen wrote in her Hauser Thoughts that the phone perv “really made my day.” Helen’s husband was shocked when he heard about the episode, causing Helen to shrug and say: “I love being old.”

Question: Besides dissing phone pervs, can you think of any other benefits to getting older?
