Old Enough to Discount

I met a friend for lunch on Saturday at IHOP, one of my favorite places to eat where breakfast is served all day long. After a leisurely meal and lots of good, hot coffee, we proceeded to the checkout where the cashier asked if we were entitled to any discounts. My friend is an active duty Marine, so she got a military discount. I said no. . .but then it dawned on me that I had turned 55 on the 20th; so I said, "Hey, I'm 55; does that count?" Well, it sure does! I got my first senior citizen's discount. I love being able to save money on items, but senior citizen? Hey, who am I to look a gift horse in the mouth?
