Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.
One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, 'Now don't get mad at me. I know we've been friends for a long time, but I can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is.'
Her friend glared at her for at least three minutes; she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, 'How soon do you need to know?'
