You know you're getting old when . . .
Susan and I decided to make Chili and Cornbread, sit by the fire and watch TV today. Great Sunday activity.
My chili recipe includes beer and frozen cut okra. We needed some ingredients and so off to the store we went.
At checkout, with the beer, the clerk was running them through and of course there was the extra beep when the beer went across the scanner. The running total sign asked "Customer over 40?". Usually at this point cashiers are supposed to ask for an ID. I'm at the point of being flattered to be thought of that young. I've been known to respond "Bless you, child" or sometimes "Bless you, GrandChild".
Not today. The cashier didn't even blink but punched 'yes'.
