Yes, and it always happens to me on a day I'm feeling particularly young (30-ish) and chipper. We got our tab at a restaurant last week with the 10% senior discount without even being asked! Good grief!!! How is that possible?

Dang. You didn't even have the "Senior Uniform" on and still got the discount??? lolololol

Hasn't happened to me yet, but hubby gets offered discounts regularly!

I will say . . . the last time I went to the movie theatre, I asked for a Senior ticket. I nearly didn't but hey - a few bucks is a few bucks.

LOL, I'm with, ani. A few bucks is a few bucks and getting a discount makes my day. I get a fair share of senior discounts, probably because I let my hair go grey, and probably also because I make a point of asking for 'em whenever I can. To me it's kinda fun.

LOL, yes lofty and probably also approaching crazy. But fun to see how close I can get. I never would have guessed I'd get this far. This time last year I was in a fair amount of pain and tired. I liked my job but sitting for 8+ hours every day was taking a toll on my whole lower body. Not sure if that was why I was so tired or if it was just that working had gotten old. At any rate, I really didn't realize how bad it was for me to sit that much until I started doing the daily walks. It's not for everyone, but doing my circuit every day is definitely doing wonders for me. And the endorphin rush is a trip. I used to hear people talking about it back in the 70s when everyone was into running, but I always thought they were BSing. Never guessed how overpowering something as little as a few rushing endorphins could be.

Waiting for Roger the Handyman (that's what he calls himself) - I warned him I have a list - wait til he sees it

I am a believer in endorphins. I can tell the difference in how much better I feel when I am racing around here as opposed to sitting. I may be more physically exhausted but I am mentally more alive.

LOL, well I'm definitely a believer in endorphins now. They're such funny things, though. I didn't really feel them for the first few months. Then when they kicked in, they kicked in big time! I was downright giddy. Still am at times. Wish there was some way to bottle it or pass it around. It's the kind of thing you wish you could share.

Not even close But, he is very good at everything (???????), DEPENDABLE (a rare thing) and priced reasonable (another rare thing). He arrived and instead of deflating he seems energized by the challenge. Most of his customers are retired ladies (some married but their husbands don't do this stuff) and it's easy to see he likes helping us. Plus, you'd never know it but he must be rolling in the dough.
