Two very elderly ladies were enjoying the sunshine on a park bench in Miami.  They’d been meeting at that park every sunny day for over a dozen years, chatting and enjoying each other’s company.

One day, the younger of the two ladies turned to the other and says, “Please don’t be angry with me, dear, but I am embarrassed.  After all these years . . . what is your name?  For the life of me I can’t remember.”

The older friend stares at her looking very distressed.  After a full two minutes of silence, with tears in her eyes, the older one says, “How soon do you have to know?”
