Senior Citizen Discount!

Senior CitizenRecently on one of my road trips, I ran into a fast food restaurant for a cup of coffee. As I was ordering, the clerk asked, “Are you a senior citizen?”

Her question almost took my breath away!! Do I look old? Do I feel old? Do I act old? Wasn’t it just yesterday when I was getting carded “in the other direction”?

Once I was over the shock I asked her, “What exactly prompted you to ask me that question?” Oh she replied, “I was just trying to give you a discount!” Whew … I don’t know if she was being honest or not, but I felt better!!

Even though I recently celebrated another birthday (yes, another year closer to the senior discount), I feel young at heart and hope I act that way, too!  This encounter was a reminder to enjoy every day … regardless of our age!
