An Old Woman Displays Her Great Wisdom In Her Simple Drink Order

We are all born with a sense of wisdom and it helps us to get by in our early years. At first, we use wisdom to do things like learn how to read and communicate with others, but then something happens as we get older.

Suddenly, we begin to acquire wisdom that helps us to get through life in ways that would have been impossible with the wisdom we were born with. It’s even something that at times, we may accumulate to the point that people even seek us out for answers to their problems.

In the following joke, an old woman is showing wisdom in a very interesting way. It is not only something that will leave you laughing, you may just make you wonder about the reality of it all.

A woman is in the bar of a cruise ship and asks the bartender for a scotch with two drops of water.

As the bartender gives her the drink she says, “I’m on the cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it’s today.”

The bartender says “Well, since it’s your birthday, I’ll buy you a drink. In fact, this one is on me.”

As the woman finishes her drink, the woman to her right says “I would like to buy you a drink too.”

The old woman says “Thank you. Bartender, I want a scotch with two drops of water.”

“Coming up,” says the bartender. As she finishes her drink, the man to her left says, “I would like to buy you one too.”

The old woman says, “Thank you. Bartender, I would like another scotch with two drops of water.”

“Commin’ right up,” the bartender says. As he gives her the drink he says, “Ma’am, I’m dying of curiosity. Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?”

The old woman replies, “Sonny, when you’re my age, you learn how to hold your liquor. Water, however, is a whole other issue.”
