My age just hit home.  I've been called "old" twice this week. Still I haven't considered myself old.  Even though Clive was one of the 2 that called me old, you all probably don't really consider me old.

However, I had this conversation with my little brother Garrett:

(We're in the the kitchen, and he is twirling around in circles while talking to me and counting to ten.)
Me: Do you know what comes after 10?
Garrett: No
Me: 11 comes after 10. 
Garrett: 11
Me: Yeah. Smiley  Do you know what comes after 11?
Garrett: No
And so on until we get to 21.  Okay, now he has repeated 21.
Me: Do you know anyone that is 21?
Garrett: Na-nee (his nickname for me) Grin
Me: Yeah! Grin 

As I stood there looking down at him, the difference in our age was just so evident at the moment.  I felt older for a second.

I was in some discount store a few months back.  When I went to pay for my purchase, the checkout girl rang me up and gave me a 10% discount.  I asked about the discount, since I didn't see any signs.  She told me Tuesday was Senior citizen day at their store and that was their discount for seniors.   Embarrassed  I'm still 10 years away, I guess I look old.

I get that "Senior coffee, sir?" bit at McDonalds quite often. If I didn't like their coffee so much I would never go in there. Kids  Roll Eyes

I just turned 50 in January.  21 seems like a long time ago, which it was.  Everything is relative.  God willing, when I reach 60, 50 will seem young (well maybe not that young.)

I feel my age when you see a young police officer (who still has pimples), and he calls you maam!!!!!  I feel like patting him on the head, and saying "Yes Son"!!!!! Grin Grin

My 85 year-old Mom has been in the hospital for seven weeks and I have been visiting her frequently.  I find that when I go to the hospital cafeteria the cashier gives me a 20 percent senior discount.  She never asks me how old I am - I turn 65 on March 25 and I guess I look my age.

On the positive side, I get a large styrofoam cup of freshly-brewed Maxwell House coffee for $0.95.  Whoopie!!!
