    A little old couple walked slowly into a McDonalds one cold winter
    evening. They looked out of place amid the young families and young
    couples eating there that night. Some of the customers looked admiringly
    at them. You could tell what the admirers were thinking. "Look, there is
    a couple who has been through a lot together, probably for 60 years or
    more!" The little old man walked up to the cash register, placed his order
    with no hesitation and then paid for their meal. The couple took a table
    near the back wall and started taking food off of the tray. There was one
    hamburger, one order of French fries and one drink. The little old man
    unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half. He placed
    one half in front of his wife. Then he carefully counted out the French
    fries, divided them in two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his
    wife. He took a sip of the drink, and then his wife took a sip as the man
    began to eat his few bites. Again, you could tell what people around the
    old couple were thinking "That poor old couple."

    As the old man began eating his French fires, a young man stood up and
    walked to the old couples' table. He politely offered to buy another meal.
    The old man replied that they were just fine. They were used to sharing
    everything. Then the crowd noticed that the little old lady still hadn't
    eaten a thing. She just sat there watching her husband eat and
    occasionally sipped some of the drink. Again, the young man came over
    and begged them to let him buy them another meal. This time, the lady
    explained that no, they were used to sharing. As the little old man
    finished eating and was wiping his face neatly with a napkin, the young
    man could stand it no longer and asked again. After being politely
    refused again, he finally asked the little old lady, "Ma'am, why aren't you
    eating. You said that you share everything. What is it that you are
    waiting for?"

    She answered, "The teeth".
