Senior Coffee

With my gray beard and bald head I can officially pass for a geezer now: at the McDonalds in Rosslyn, at least, I've never been carded when I order a 50¢ "Senior Coffee". It's a discount for the elderly that an aging fellow MetroBus rider told me about some months ago. The coffee is only ok, but the price is definitely right. When I arrive early and have at least 10 minutes to wait, I often indulge myself. It's all part of an ongoing campaign to stop fretting quite so much about money. Clearly, however, I have far to go in that department: I'm still noticing and clinging to and commenting on trivial sums, such as the price of a cup of coffee!
