Oldness

I was reading a worthless chapter in my Ethics book yesterday (It is worthless because I found out nothing on it will be on any exam, and I had to discipline myself on a very busy day to read ten pages at a time and then go and get something done around the house!) and they referenced Eastern religions and why they are so kind and respectful to the elderly.

Today is my husband’s birthday.  He qualifies for the senior discount at Denny’s, so his dad took him out for breakfast.

That is about the limit of respect to the elderly in the West:  discounts and Social Security in the U.S.  By the time we get to Social Security, it will either exclude us or be non-existent.
