Caruso Funny ~ Texting Codes for Seniors…


I am sure as most of you know texting is the big thing with the kids these day. And they all have their texting codes like;

  • BFF (best friends forever)
  • LOL (laughing out loud)
  • BRB (be right back)
  • FYI (for your information)
  • WTF (what the F***)
  • GTG (got to go)
  • LMAO (laughing my ass off)

So why not some codes for seniors (60 and over):

Caruso’s Fools Day!


 Happy April Fools Day Everyone! Can you believe it’s already April?! Time is flying by! In light of this fun holiday I thought I would provide you with a few silly, old fashioned practical jokes.

 *If your milk comes in a cardboard container, add a few drops of food coloring, the results are pretty colorful.

*If you have a sink with a sprayer, put a rubber band around the handle. This automatically keeps the nozzle in spray-mode. Make sure the nozzle is pointing up and outward. The next person to use the sink will get a splash

*Superglue some coins to the sidewalk or any spot that has a lot of people walking around. Make sure it’s an appropriate place, then watch people go crazy trying to get the coins.

*Ask a friend to put a quarter on a piece of paper and without removing their finger, trace the coin with a pencil. Repeat the “test” with a few fingers. After that’s done, get your friend to pick up the quarter and roll it along the bridge of their nose. Then watch as they walk around with a black line along their nose. Don’t use a permanent marker.

*If you have holders for your salt and pepper, switch the salt with sugar.

 *Put Saran Wrap or any other clear plastic wrap over the toilet, between the bowl and the seat. This will defiantly be a funny sight but be ready to clean up the mess afterward.

*Get a hole punch and a piece of paper so that you end up with all this little circles of paper. Then take all the little circles of paper and put them in someones car where the air comes out when defrost is on. Turn the defrost on ALL the way and turn the radio on, wipers, anything else you want. The minute the car starts, all the little “holes” come flying out and you get covered with them. 

Have a fun and safe day everyone!
