SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
Interview With An 80-year-old Woman
The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten married for the fourth time.
The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband’s occupation.
“He’s a funeral director,” she answered.
Interesting, the newsman thought. He then asked her, “Would you mind telling him a little about your first three husbands; what did they for a living?”
She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she’d first married a banker when she was in her early 20s, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40s, later on a preacher when in her 60s, and now in her 80s, a funeral director.
The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers
She smiled and explained, “I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go.”
