Usta get carded for drinks well into my 30's. Now, I get asked if I qualify for the senior citizen discount. In a lotta places I do qualify. Still haven't figured out if that's good or bad.

I have in my head that the crossover point to old age is 60. 59 and below you're still middle-aged. I make the crossover the end of this month. Oh well. Guess I oughta be happy I made it this far (and still goin' strong - I think).
