Si, Si, Senior!

I had lunch at Taco Bell yesterday.

Not my most favorite of Mexican restaurants, but it's near work and I can pay with my debit card. (Mighty Taco is Taco Bell done right!)

I ordered a Taco Salad and a Small Pepsi. Can you see the additional item on the receipt that I didn't order? Hint: I put a box around it.

Yeah, I just turned 49 last week. But the sad thing is, I've been getting the Senior Discount, sporadically, for years, now. The frequency of issuance has increased recently, that's all. If I consistently buttoned up the top button of my shirt and used a walker as a prop I could probably get this courtesy 100% of the time. I'm working on the following rap, to be delivered in a distracted, halting monotone:

"Oh, you know my grand-daughter works at McDonalds, too. Or is it Kinkos? Any way, she works somewhere. She's a nice kid, like you. You don't have any tattoos, do you? Kids these days. She wants to get one, but her Mom won't let her. Good for her! (Ad Lib ad infinitum...)"

BTW, the Fantastic Sam's that does my haircuts gives me the $6.00 "Bald Man's Special." I kid you not, that's how it rings up!

I'm getting AARP mail...

I don't know how they found me but they just won't stop trying to entice me into membership with promises of vacation savings and cheap insurance.

I'm building an addition on to the house with all the plastic membership cards they're sending me.

Have you heard Bob Dylans new album?

Tasty licks, dude...

Eighty-two days till the baby. I am climbing walls in anticipation.

Dirkster, I hope the final trimester and birth go as smoothly for you and your wife as they did for me and my wife. One word: EPIDURAL!

Oh, and be prepared for the inevitable well-intentioned, "Oh, and how old is your grandson?" inquiries...

LMAO yet again! Not only do you write good, but you joke really good!

My parents gave me a framed membership card for the local senior citizens club when I turned forty. HA HA, VERY FUNNY (NOT). Forty on up really was their age reqirement.

Maybe you should shave your head. A chrome dome totally disguises age; but then you'd lose the discounts...

Still LOL!

Ouch. But, you know the kids who work at fast food places probably code everyone over 30 as old. Maybe when they tell you the total, you can add on to your old person routine by cupping your hand behind you ear and shouting, Eh?"
