Esther Rothstein, an elderly lady, is on a cruise ship. She wanders up to the bar and asks for a Scotch with two drops of water.
As the bartender gives her the drink she says, "I'm on the cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it's today."
The bartender says "Well, since it's your birthday, this is on me."
As Esther finishes her drink, the lady to her right says, "I would like to buy you a drink too."
The elderly matron says, "Thank you. Bartender, I want a scotch with two drops of water."
"Coming up," says the bartender.
As Esther finishes her drink, the man to her left says, "I would like to buy you one, also.
Esther says, "Thank you. Bartender, I would like another scotch with two drops of water."
"Comin' 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 80 year old Esther Rothstein replies, "Sonny, when you're my age, you've learned how to hold your liquor. Water, however, is a whole other issue!!!"
