Scrabble and - Laxatives???

Mavis, Jenny and Elsie are sisters. They range in age from around 83 to around 91. All three are active and stay involved in church, community and family. Among other things, all three are avid Scrabble players.


I know about them because Elsie is my mom; Jenny and Mavis, obviously then, are my aunts.

They often get together to play Scrabble, and when they do, they play several games, often from late morning until midnight or so.

Sometimes, they even go to the beach for a weekend of Scrabble, playing until well into the wee morning hours.

On one such occasion, when they were holed up at a condo and spending a fun-filled weekend at the beach, after playing several games and as it neared bedtime, Jenny asked if either of the other two happened to have a laxative. Mavis did.

She went out of the room, then returned momentarily with two capsules, which she gave to Jenny.
Jenny promptly took the two capsules.

A short time later, as an afterthought, Jenny asked Mavis how long it took for the capsules to, um, “take effect.” (Know what I mean?)

Mavis didn’t say anything for a minute, then replied, “I don’t know. I’ve never taken two at a time.”

Incredulous, Jenny asked Mavis why she had given her two, if she’d never taken two.

Mavis said, “Well, I just didn’t want you to think I was stingy!”
