Perks to being a senior
Finally I have something to get excited about being considered a "senior". I realized this the other day when ordering from the senior menu at Denny's. It was so personal, it spoke to me. Right up at the top of the menu it says in big, bold letters "For Our Senior Friends". Friends mind you, not acquaintances, not diners, not old geezers......it says FRIENDS. I don't know about anyone else but that makes me just want to order a "grand slam" just for the adventure of it and besides....it's among "friends". I was first introduced to the idea of "senior" menus not by Denny's but by Ihop. Did you know that just being over 55 will get you two entrees for the price of one between the hours of 4pm and 6pm? What a deal! My kids ask, "Who in the world wants to eat so early?" But heck, I need two hours to digest so I won't get reflux. That gets me to bed right on time... So between coupons and senior discounts I guess that makes me the cheapest date in town. My significant other assured me I'm just more bang for the buck! Age does have its’ own reward!
