It's Official! I'm a Senior Citizen!

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

There is a local restaurant that offers seniors a 10% discount any time you purchase a meal. They consider seniors to be age 55 plus. Oh, yes, I have taken advantage of this deal. Then there was a similar restaurant in another part of town offering a senior discount to those aged 60 and up. It has closed, but I was not able to take advantage of that, yet, wrong age.

But I know I have officially arrived as a senior citizen because of what happened last Friday. I went and got a much needed haircut at my regular hair 'boutique.' It dawned on me that this lovely younger woman says her Friday mornings she has regular 'seniors' who come for their regular wash and style. Here I was, getting not only a cut, but also a wash and style. Me and my hair have officially become 'senior.'

A few years ago, hubby and I were invited to a retirement dinner for some very close friends. We decided to do a parody on some songs they would have known from their past and from when their kids were teenagers. If you recognize what these statements can be sung to, you are probably a senior citizen, too.

Splish, Splash, I was havin' a flash!

Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely walker.

I'll get by with a little help from Depends.

How can you mend a broken hip, and walk without a limp?

The first time ever I forgot your face . . .

I can see clearly now, trifocals on.

And there's 50 ways to lose your liver.

Heard it thru the grape nuts!

. . . turns a whiter shade of hair . .

You make me feel, you make me feel, like napping.

Knock three times on the ceiling if you hear me fall. . .

I am woman, hear me snore, I am too loud to ignore. . .

It's my procedure and I'll cry if I want to, cry if I want to, cry if I want to, You would cry too if they cut up on you.

On the commode again, I can't wait I had to go again . .

When the joints ache, when the hips break, when the eyes grow dim, I simply remember the great life I've had and then I don't feel so bad.

If you're a senior, take advantage of the senior discounts. You've earned it!!!

    I knew the songs and was told by a teen the other day that he appreciated me...."you elders" being the examples of his life. Too cool.
