The bartender says, ‘Well, since it’s your birthday, I’ll buy you a drink.
As the woman finishes her drink the woman to her right says, ‘I would like to buy you a drink, too.’
The old woman says, ‘Thank you.
Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water.’
‘Coming up,’ says the bartender.
As she finishes that drink, the man to her left says, ‘I would like to buy you one, too.’
The old woman says, ‘Thank you.’
Bartender, ‘I want another Scotch with two drops of water.’
‘Coming right up’ the bartender says. As he gives her the drink, he says ‘Ma’am, I’m dying of curiosity. Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?’
The old woman replies, ‘Sonny, when you’re my age, you’ve learned how to hold your liquor, but holding your water is a whole other issue.’
