Getting Older


On days I know that I look bad

I really do not mind

Admitting I'm a senior now

The discounts are so fine

But when I'm feeling springy

It gives me pure delight

To fool someone and pay full price

Conceited woman, you ain't right

This is sweet. You dont even look like a senior. I bet with all those grandkids you have, you aren't really one yet. The kid keep you in the know. So go ahead and pay full price, Carol, if it makes you feel younger....anything to make you feel sneaky and fun.

You may not be "right" but you are clippy! I just can't get away with it anymore. Maybe my hairdresser's right--I should get my hair colored. But what about the wrinkles???
Oh, well, all of my favorite people are getting old just like me--YOU, for instance!

Love ya,

I got a great chuckle out of this. i was with my husband who has snow white hair, and is 61 years old, we walked into a restaurant and they gave us both a senior discount. I was insulted at first, but hey may as well enjoy the low prices. I'm still in no hurry to hit 60, even though I don't have but 8 years.

Demons of Justice by Regis Schilken

Humans don't just slide into non-being; yet, the disappearance of 4 people, including her own kin brother, tears at her sanity! ..
