Have some sympathy for me! You're already old and have been through it. But for me I have it bad, I now have to go through it, help me!

Wait! Whut? So what's green banananananas have to do with this age issue, personally I thought it was HOORAY!! - cause you're closer to getting the free cottage cheese with your meal from Friendly's restaurant. Seniors need their calcium you know.

I asked a guy one time how old he was. He said, "well, I'm not gonna tell ya, but I won't be buying any green bananas, that's for sure."

Oddly, they've been contacting me for years. There are perks, like magazine subscription discounts. I turn 40 in October.

NO! That's C.A.R.P - Canadian Association of Retired Persons.

Not B.A.S.S - Bygone and Antiquated Senior Sitizen (ok,ok, so I spelled it with an 'S', it's my age, I'm allowed).
