So the other day

on my birthday we were at the movie theatre, Beloved was buying tickets

“Three for Daybreakers, please.” ***movie review next time as this post is all about moi.

Baby girl and I were standing sorta behind him. I could see the cashier glance at us…

She said, “Any seniors or students?”

Wha, wha, WHAT? Oh yes she did. I could understand her mistake after all I was wearing a big coat (it was 26 degrees F) a scarf around my old turkey neck, celebrity sun glasses (it was sunny) and I had a fresh hair cut so my silver threads surely must have been shinning so brightly that she could only guess that maybe I was. A student, now wouldn’t that have been sweet, but no she meant senior. SENIOR. If she only knew that I am actually (surely) 10 years younger, nah 15 years her junior and a much better crazy a$$ than she. Humph!

No wait there’s more…Beloved latter whispered to me that he almost turned around to ask me, “Mom are you a senior now?” What a man, I just have to love him. Well I do on accounta we are married and that makes me obligated. Doesn’t it?

Guess what? I brushed my teeth with my right hand. WoooWhoooo! I’m such a big girl.

Here is a weird question for all my dear internets to ponder

Does the tongue wrinkle when people (not me) get old?

"Any Seniors here?" -chuckle-

"Does the tongue wrinkle when people (not me) get old?"

You are a big girl now. And a funny one too. Don't know about the tongue thing. I've got enough to worry about, Paige!

They are required by their handbook training to ask -- they're on commission. For every 100 times they ask if there are seniors or students they get a dime.

Studies prove that getting in seniors by volume boosts box office receipts by billions annually. No world of lie! Well, not too many words of lie. :)

I don't think it does. Not that I've noticed anyway or maybe I haven't reached to age of "wrinkled tongue" syndrome setting in yet.

It woulda been a happier B-day if she implied you were underage! the nerve of some folks...
oh well!

I don't think the tongue wrinkles- all muscle, right?

n Happy Back to Work day too!

you really are a hoot!! I don't know about everyone, but I have noticed my 87 year old father in law has a deeply creviced tongue - kinda wrinkled looking. I never asked if it's always been that way though :)

This reminds me of the time I received an insurance offer in the mail. It read something like "as you approach your senior years you might want to think about more insurance, blah blah blah." How I wish I'd been the one to get that out of the mailbox. But no, it was dear hubby, who had entirely too much fun reading it to me word for word. The nerve!
Wrinkled tongue? As everyone else already said - I've enough to worry about! Thanks a lot Paige! ;)
