The Sunday Times had this funny piece on “famous” telegrams over the years, and this one made me laugh. Apparently, a journalist once sent a telegram to Cary Grant’s people asking him his age, and it read:
“How old Cary Grant?”
In reply, Grant sent this telegram:
“Old Cary Grant fine. How you?”
Man, jokes like this crack me up. I had to call my dad and tell him because I inherited a gene that made me know he would like it too, and he did laugh too. You’ve got to love hearing your dad laugh long and genuinely.
