An old woman asked her 90-year-old friend for a favor and got the response of a lifetime.

Betty and Bertha are two 90-year-old best friends since they could remember. Bertha had fallen ill and was visited by Betty every day.

While visiting, Betty said:

“Bertha, we both loved playing softball all our lives, and we played all through high school. Please do me one favor: when you get to heaven, somehow you must let me know if there’s women’s softball there.’”

In response, Bertha looked up from her deathbed, agreed and said:

“Betty, you’ve been my best friend for many years. If it’s at all possible, I’ll do this favor for you.”

Shortly after, Bertha died.

A few nights passed and while Betty was fast asleep, she heard she heard a voice calling her name:

“Betty, Betty,” said the voice.

“Who is it, who is it?” Betty replied.

“Betty -- it’s me, Bertha.”

The two conversed:

“You’re not Bertha. Bertha just died.”

“I’m telling you, it’s me, Bertha,” the voice insisted.


“Bertha! Where are you?”

“In heaven. I have some really good news and a little bad news,” said the voice excitedly.

“Tell me the good news first,” said Betty.

“The good news is that there’s women’s softball in heaven. Better yet, all of our old buddies who died before me are here, too. Even better than that, we’re all young again. Better still, it’s always Springtime and it never rains or snows. And best of all, we can play softball all we want, and we never get tired.”

“That’s fantastic,” Betty replied. “It’s beyond my wildest dreams! So what’s the bad news?”


“You’re pitching Tuesday.”
