    funny when written as when spoken.

    My grandpa had macular degeneration and could barely see anything but shape and light. One afternoon my mom (who is in her 50's and had gained some weight) walked by him and he asked, "Jill -- are you pregnant?" We all yelled, "we thought you couldn't see!!"

    My grandpa never lost his sense of humor which helped us deal with our grief we felt for his sight loss. He had been a golfer and a football coach so for him not to be able to watch golf or football on TV or do the crossword puzzle everyday was sad. But as long as he laughed, we could, too.
