Okay, time for a confession. The picture I have published in the "About Me" column is a year old. Due to chemical sensitivities I had to give up "vanity" and go el-natural. I am white/silver headed. I tell people I earned every white hair on my head!
The other week Jim and I went out to dinner, when he paid the bill he realized they gave us a senior discount. I thought that maybe it was because I didn't have any makeup on along with the cane I use to walk. So the other day Heather, Travis and I went to the store. I put my makeup on so I would look younger (so I thought). We were getting ready to check out and I had to go to the bathroom, so I gave Heather my debit card to pay my bill. When I got into the car, Heather and Travis were laughing. I asked them to share the joke with me. Heather proceeded to tell me that the check out clerk asked her if I had a senior discount card, Heather said, no, then the clerk said, OK, I will give it to her this time but next time she will need to have her senior discount card with her! You may be thinking, wasn't that nice of the clerk. NOT....... Why?
I'm only 50 years old!!!!! I guess it's the white hair after all. I thought makeup would make me look younger. I guess I was wrong! On the bright side... with today's economy it always help when you can save a buck! lol....
