SENIOR SOAP OPERAS (ain’t none of us gettin’ any younger)

While talking with my mom about the goings on in her senior living building with all of their drama: gossip, romantic trysts, etc.. I started riffing on names for soap operas about seniors. She thought they were funny and encouraged me to write them up.

Here’s my list so far:


  1. The Last Days of Our Lives

  2. All My Children Don’t Visit Me

  3. The Old & The Beautiful

  4. Youngest in the Rest Home

  5. In Bed Before Night

  6. The Brighter Yesterday

  7. Another Funeral

  8. As the Stool Softens

  9. Ryan Hopes He Remembers

  10. What Was I Searching For?

  11. Geriatric Hospital

  12. One Gripe To Give
