It’s been almost 3 months since I turned 40. Yup, the big 4-0. Over the hill. Geezer. My bones creak. I fall asleep watching TV. I am getting older and it apparently shows. The other day I bought beer for my beer braised sausage and kraut, and the checkout clerk didn’t card me. He just slid that beer across the scanner and bagged it with my other groceries. I was so insulted. Sure, sure, I’m way past the legal age to buy alcohol but come on!!! I normally get carded and really, really wanted the ego boost. While I didn’t expect him to actually think I was under 21, because anyone with good eyesight can see that I am not that young, but it would have been nice if he had at least hesitated and apologetically asked to see my license.
