Shocking but true

My wife and I went to the movies last Saturday night. We saw A Star is Born which we both liked.  senior

 

But that's not the real story....when we walked up to the ticket counter, I asked for two adults. And then we heard a shocking but true response from the young man behind the counter. "Senior Discount?"

 

We both looked at each other in shock and laughed. It was the first time we've been asked. Pam asked the ticket seller what age is the senior discount. He said "60" and we bothed laughed again. We just turned 60 this past year.

 

I accepted the discount, we bought the largest bucket of popcorn they sold and walked into the theater thinking that I'm sure that's not the last time that will happen.

    Most shocking is when I get proofed when buying a drink.

    That hasn't happened to us...yet. I'm sure it will at some point.

    I still have to sometimes show ID to get a senior discount. Also when I was 35 I was asked for ID at the bar at the bethpage golf course.

    Pam does not appear anywhere near her bio age; you? Let’s just say faceful hair lends an aire of distinction.

    It's one of the perks of getting older. Embrace it.

    I wasn't thrilled when I received my first free membership to the AARP. Then, when I heard about the discounts, I happily accepted.

    So yeah ... When my youngest Marine was 6 I’d walk him to class in the AM and the kids would ask me if I was Luke’s Grandpa. Ouch !

    I realized I was no longer Loretta Young (Fred calls me that) when offered subway seats.

    Mitch, enjoy it...its one of the few advantages of having a 6 as the first digit as one's age...
