What makes a GOF?

  1. Last Winter the gal at KFC asked if I qualified for senior discount. Actually, she already rang me up as a senior & casually asked.
    At the time I had a full beard with hints of gray.

    My niece recently told me I could still pass for 40. I'll take that!

    I’ll be sixty in a few days and am still pretty certain that I’ll never be a GOF, life here on your planet just isn’t that serious of a matter.

    Not knowing your circumstances and the planet you are from, I really cannot comment on your response ;).

    You know what aging means? You're not dead.

    I'll take it.

  6. I'm an amputee and have a robot leg (as the kids call it). I get a lot of "Thanks for your service!" greetings from people. I hate to tell them that it was nothing heroic. It was a bacterium that was eating my leg from the inside out and with a compromised immune system from leukemia my body couldn't fight back. A guy I met the other day said, "You may not me a veteran of war, but you are certainly a veteran. I'll take that.

    I can be a cranky GOF, but I try to keep it civil and with a sense of humor.

    I’ve always had a grumpy streak. I can now add old fart since I’ve been offered the seniors discount at the drugstore more than once recently. I’m only 52! I stopped going to that drugstore.

    Nowadays, anyone over 55 could be considered a senior. Before I was of age, I would be offered a senior discount which, I politely refused. Now, I accept them. Anyone who offers them obviously appreciates the business that seniors bring. It's what keeps me coming back to them. My hat is off to the kid at Taco Bell. Apparently he has been brought up right. Hope he has a long and successful life. There is a special place reserved for people like that.

    There's a grocery store in my hood what always cards everyone buying liquor. I go there alot for the ego boost. That's why, yep.

    Also, I do a lot of telephone work and apparently have a young voice. My job is competitive, and it's funny when I give my real age (59), or better yet, wait until they see me.

    My fave movie many daze and nights is, Gran Torino. Oddly enuff, my ex - whom I've not seen in about 15 years, always said my old 'un* looked like Clint. I've not heard that yet, at least ...
