It's one thing to have a senior discount forced upon you. A real milestone in your life is when you are eligible to order off the senior menu.
But, the real important turning point is when you decide to admit that you are old enough to order off the senior menu by, ahem, actually ordering off it.
A restaurant like Denny's or IHOP has a special section, usually in the back, with large print for older folks who want a smaller meal, at a lower price. A big personal decision happens when you turn to the attractive young waitperson and say, "I'd like the senior two egg special."
More than likely, you just hang your head down, point and mumble. You take the money you have saved and buy some Ben-Gay, to massage your aching back, along with massaging your bruised ego.
