ElderlyJokes An 80-Year-Old Woman Is Sleeping Good At Night. The Reason Is Pure Gold. 7.3k Views The doctor that had been seeing an 80-year-old woman for most of her life, had finally retired. At her next checkup, her new doctor told her to bring a list of all the medicines that had been prescribed for her. As the young doctor was looking through these, his eyes grew wide as he realized she had a prescription for birth control pills. “Mrs Smith, do you realize these are BIRTH CONTROL pills?” “Yes, they help me to sleep at night.” “Mrs Smith, I assure you there is absolutely NOTHING in these that could possibly help you sleep!” She reached out and patted the young Doctor‘s knee. Yes dear, I know that. “But every morning, I grind one up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16-year old granddaughter drinks….. And believe me, it helps me sleep at night.” See more Previous joke A Lawyer And An Old Man Are Sitting Next To Each Other. Next joke A Lady Was At Work.
