It All Depends On Your Point Of View

It could only happen in Florida. This is a true story I heard from a friend on Thursday night, of a recent experience she had in Northern Pinellas County...

My friend, Linda, had a visitor from out of town. The visitor was her best friend and roommate from college, named Pam. They were having a great visit when Pam asked to go to a club in Ybor City (Tampa). Linda and her husband did not feel like driving all the way to Tampa to visit historic Ybor even though it is thought of as an area of popular night spots. The also passed on going to another popular night spot in Tampa at the upscale International Mall called the Blue Martini. Instead they chose to go to a place closer to home in Palm Harbor.

Now, Linda was convinced that they would be the oldest people there. However, this changed rapidly when going into the club they passed a couple of 70 year olds leaving. Okay, so maybe they weren't going to be the oldest ones there.

They stepped into the very crowded club. Techno music was being played... no band, just recordings. The only seats they could find were way on the other side next to some elevated platforms where people could dance. They sat down and ordered their drinks and tried to have a conversation over the music while occasionally glancing up at the multilevel platforms which would from time to time have a dancer or two.

It wasn't very long before a women, probably in her sixties (it was hard to tell her age) who looked like she was a crack addict, got up on the platform to dance. She was very skinny and was wearing a silver lame' top with a miniskirt. The outfit showed her midriff and the skirt was certainly shorter than you would expect to see on someone in her age range.

Miniskirts and raised platforms do not make good a combination... at least in this instance. The view from their seats showed them far more than they wanted to see of this silver lame' adorned woman. They could hardly control themselves when they looked up to have a clear view up her skirt at...



...her very visible pair of Depends. Yup... It all Depends on your point of view.

Ha! I guess as long as they weren't drooping with weight, I would have to admire her courage or insanity...

Well you know...they're living longer these days so I guess they're feeling younger too.

That,,, is one funny post. In some of us, judgement improves with age. It disappears in others.
