George and Edith had been high school sweethearts 50 years ago, but had gone their separate ways after graduation. Then, two years ago, their paths crossed again, and they began seeing each other regularly. With age 70 just around the corner, they decided life was too short, and they might as well spend the rest of their lives together. Excited about their decision to marry, they went for a stroll to discuss the wedding, and found themselves in front of a drugstore. George said, "Let’s go in. I have an idea."
Addressing the man behind the counter, George asked, "Are you the owner?" The pharmacist answered, "Yes sir, I am. How can I help you?"
George: "Do you sell heart medications?"
Pharmacist: "Of course."
George: "How about support hose?"
George: "What about medications for rheumatism, osteoporosis and arthritis?"
Pharmacist: "All kinds."
George: "How about waterproof furniture pads and Depends?"
Pharmacist: "Yes, sir."
George: "Hearing aids, denture supplies and reading glasses?"
George: "What about eye drops, sleeping pills, Geritol, Preparation-H and Ex-Lax?"
George: "You sell wheelchairs, walkers and canes?"
Pharmacist: "Yes, indeed. But why all these questions?"
George smiled, glanced shyly at Edith and replied, "We’ve decided to get
married and we’re considering you for our bridal registry."
