I have never acted my age and am not about to start doing so now. However, I must admit that the world is engaged in a conspiracy to remind me that I am getting older…
- I just received my Medicare Card.
- I don’t have to ask for the “senior discount” at Noah’s Bagels–it’s automatic.
- When I order my favorite drink in a restaurant, the waitress frequently brings it to me with a story from the bartender that goes something like this: “He really enjoys making it. He used to make it for his grandmother.” (Augh! I really hate that!) *
Getting older notwithstanding, I REFUSE to grow up.
*UPDATE: October 30, 2009
A few days ago we were at Point Reyes Station and I ordered my “usual” from the bar. This time the bartender said: “I make this for my mother all the time. She really likes them.”
