...I was charged as a "senior" at the movies, that is. I went to the movies with a friend of mine last night, and I was remarking that it was unusual that they had lowered their ticket prices to $6.50. She replied that she'd paid $7. Then it hit me. The ticket seller assumed I was "senior." He didn't even ask.

I felt terrible.

When I got home, I looked up what this theater considers senior: 62. I'm 57. OK, I know that's not a whole lot of difference, but I'm not ready for my 60s. Plus lately I've been looking at photos of myself and I feel I've really aged in the last year, so I'm feeling insecure about that. I have my hair colored and cut in a contemporary style. I'm not overweight. I wear contemporary clothes. But I do wear glasses (stylish of course), and I've never had any work done on my face (or anywhere else).

I was disappointed too when I opened the post assuming it was man related.. :( Not a fan. You know you had us all going with that title. I do think Marina is totally right about the eye of the beholder theory, it was probably some insensitive clueless child making an assumption.
On Morgan Freeman I was such a fan until I heard he was now with his step-daughter.

There's a host on one of those shows, and he has a British accent.

My aunt is 80 & she still colors her hair--refuses to let it go gray until she dies.

Just a point --- time/space continuum or not, I note that the Great Morgan Freeman isn't looking all that perky himself anymore.

Florida, honey, lemme give you a different perspective. My daughter was working as a bag girl in a store when she was 16.

I was disappointed when Madonna went under the knife. I thought she'd be one of the hold-outs. I wondered the same thing about the theater personnel, that he was just a kid and probably didn't even bother to look up at her.

I"m really disappointed because when I saw your title, I had hoped you were going to announce you had a date--yeah this is way worse.
