I’m much younger than the old woman I travel with.  So much younger in fact that I refer to myself as her boy-toy. 

So it was extremely distressing earlier this week when I received an unsolicited senior’s discount at a local department store here in North Platte.  The citizens of North Platte seem outwardly intelligent so it is difficult to understand why the clerk would have made such an obvious mistake, particularly since SWMBO went through the line immediately ahead of me (and didn’t receive any discount).  SWMBO says I should dye my hair and beard but, difficult to accept as the characterization may be, 15% is 15% after all.

Clearly she needed glasses.

Got a big chuckle out of that. You must be devestated! To wake up a boy toy and by dinner you're a senior citizen. Well I guess that is better than being labeled an old fool.

Take care
