Woman says a prayer about getting old at dinner


Meet Mary Maxwell. This amazing elderly woman was supposed to deliver a prayer honoring caregivers, but what she did instead has left the internet in stitches. During a 2009 event of Home Instead Senior Care, 72 year old Mary was asked to give the invocation at the company’s convention. But nobody was prepared or expecting the incredible surprise Mary was going to give them. You are going to laugh out loud when you hear her speech.

With the timing of a professional comedian, Mary shines a very funny light on the cons of aging to the delight of an audience filled with senior-care experts. A friend of the couple who founded Home Instead Senior Care, Mary was asked to deliver the prayer. And initially, it did seem like a normal prayer, but it soon took a very funny turn. Her deadpan delivery and her funny lines cracked up the crowd. Now the video has been enjoyed by more than 13 million people on the internet.

There is just no way you will be able to keep a straight face during Mary’s monologue. She starts by saying, “over the years, I’ve noticed that the two things most people want to know about you are the two things they’re far too polite to ask. So let’s get that out of the way.” Watch this video below. Did this bring a smile to your face? Let us know what you think in the comments section!
