...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).
