I was given the senior discount today.



  1. I've knowm for awhile that I'm not a kid anymore, but geeze Louise.

    I was going to be fitted with hearing aids next week. Mild to moderate loss, borderline for needing them.

    I'm taking that money for a face lift instead. I'll be deaf and rested-looking.

    You go, Sue!

    I said You go, Sue!

    No, no- I did not say I drive a Yugo, and it's blue.

    Nevermind, just take a nap. You'll wake up looking very rested.

    Yes, you were all meant to laugh!

    Helllo Nurse, yopu had me rolling! I'm starting to hear like my Grampa and Dad.

    "Honey, you want some soup?
    "What kind is it?"
    "Four o'clock."

    I wish a nap did it. I sleep for 12 hours and I awaken with the imprint of the jacquard pattern of the sheets imprinted on my puffy face.

    Sue, thanks for the reminder.

    I keep forgetting to ask for the Senior discount even though I qualify (at a lot of places here, 50+ gets it).

    But I forget which places.

    Ain't it great to get old?

    Hee!

    Getting old bites. But it beats the alternative - at least, at this point!

    I've had that fabric pattern on my face as well, Sue.

    This thread made me think of a hysterical forward I got a long time ago- "Top twenty nursing home games."

    I remember one of them was "20 Questions (shouted into your good ear)"

    HAH!

    I never put the phone to my right ear. I have no cochlear "catch the high frequency hairs" left in it.

    Someone said to me once, "You must find the learing loss to be very annoying." I answered, "Nah, I'm fine. It drives everyone else nuts."

    I'm going for the lift.

    How about when you discovered that someone replaced your thighs with cottage cheese under skin?

    You're a hoot.

    My Dad is nearly stone-deaf and refuses still to do anything about it. He figures it's OUR problem LOL.

    The other day I was trying to tell him the name of the mechanic he needed to speak with...

    "Jerry."

    "Harry?"

    [raising voice a bit] "Jerry!"

    "Larry?"

    [another notch] "Jerry!!"

    "Mary?"

    "JERRY!!!!"

    "Spell it."

    "J!!"

    "K?"

    "H, I, J!!!"

    "Jimmy?"

    "JERRYJERRYJERRYJERRY!!!!!!!!"

    "Why are you yelling?"
