Just back from the blood donor clinic and relieved that it was less humiliating than the last visit. I'm 66 but told that I look and act much younger. My wife used "quite immature" which I took as a compliment.
Last visit, I was lined up outside the door, with several others waiting to be processed for entry when a very attractive young lady of about 25 jumped up from her seat inside and approached me. I was initially quite pleased to be addressed by such an attractive lady until she asked, "Would you like my chair, sir?".
I glared at her, dripping humiliation and observed, "You may think that you have done a kind thing, but you have not!" She was obviously surprised and asked what I meant to which I responded that any man in the place would rather die than admit they needed to take her seat. She responded that she hadn't meant anything but I returned, "Yes, you did! You meant, "You had better sit down, you dottering old fool, before you fall and break a hip!" "
At that point she saw through me and started to laugh but said that she did take my point. "Leave us old codgers some illusions, young lady. We know that you don't find us attractive but it's not absolutely necessary to single us out to be informed." By now, she and her boy friend were howling with laughter. Lesson learned though. ;-) I don't quite need a walker even though I think she's in my grandson's English class.
