The Mayor's class is visiting a senior center on Friday as a class service project, though to him it is simply a field trip.
[FIELD TRIP!!! ]
Because he is going on a field trip and she is not, The Mayor feels compelled to taunt his sister about said visit to the senior center.
Sometimes The Rooster lets his taunts get her down but tonight, she shot out of her chair, raised a fist in the air and shouted,
"SENIOR CITIZENS TO THE RESCUE!"[???]
I tried to imagine specific rescue missions senior citizen super heroes might undertake.
"What will the senior citizens rescue you from?" I asked.The Mayor answered first.
"They rescue you from being old," he shrugged, as if this was common knowledge. "They are old instead of you."Then my husband chimed in,
"I think they share their experience and wisdom to rescue you from mistakes you might otherwise make."Then K laughed at himself and, faking the voice of an older person, shouted,
"MAKE SURE YOU TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR TEETH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!"I smiled imagining a collective, world-wide, senior-citizen super hero eye roll.
"To the rescue? As if you young people would actually listen? Ppppffffftttt."
