Here is a scan of a birthday card from my last birthday ( I was 60, but don’t tell anyone. They think I’m 29!) and recently a new friend on Facebook “liked” it.
I liked it so much I used it for my Facebook Profile Picture for a while, but it does beg the question:
Probably (……. NOT!)
It makes me laugh because according to the classifications I am a Senior Citizen (HEY out there! 60 IS THE NEW 40!) but I have to admit I enjoy the free bus travel, the discounts on the trains and I am even going to get a Heating Allowance this year.
Here’s the deal
- with age supposedly comes wisdom and a Senior can become a place where people come for advise (I have a teenage daughter … tell me about it)
- Seniors have probably experienced many things and instinctively know how to do stuff (You think? Most people think I can do almost everything – please don’t tell them I can’t , I love the celebrity!)
- A Senior is probably more passive and less excitable (This is ME you’re talking about … less excitable?! Yeah Right!)
You see, with all that demand, the one thing a Senior does enjoy is a little bit of piece and quiet ……… “sorry, what did you say?” “Sorry, I didn’t hear you”.
And, of course, the great thing about having a bus pass is that I can tell people that I am coming to visit but not tell them how long for – NOW, THAT IS SENIOR!
Can you hear me? Ha ha
