Age is only a number, unless you can get a sweet discount off of it….
This was Comic #43.
One of my goals for this week-plus I now have off is to take care of bloggy business, and the main part of that is to finally get my current comics caught up to date. Then, hopefully after that, to get back in the habit of actually getting the comic posted on Thursdays rather than Fridays, which I got stuck in while all the stuff was going on with my Dad. Bad habits are so hard to shake for me, but I want to get Fridays clear again for some new Shelf Critter Theatre stories. And that also means I’ll probably be posting the retro comics on Sundays once (and IF) that actually happens….
It IS biologically possible for women to have children with 53 … though it is rare these days.
True, although I doubt that is any comfort to Erin’s much younger Mommy…
She should be pleased to save another 5 $
oh that was a clever idea… I hope she got the senior ticket hahahahaha
I’m sure she did! What a helpful little girl she has…
Ha, Karma for mum! Double cheapness on the tickets, though 🙂
You’d think some people wouldn’t mind looking really old to save a few bucks…
When we’re young we want to look older and when we’re old we want to look younger…
Oops! That sure backfired quickly! I’ve always been afraid to tell those kind of lies. I remember when my kids wanted Facebook accounts when they were 11-12 (you have to be 13). I reluctantly allowed them to set up an account but I felt like the FBI was going to bust in the door at any minute!
Coming from a large brood that was just barely scraping by, my Mom did this as much as she could get away with. Me and my sisters were always supposed to be years younger than we actually were. I’d gladly take that if I could shave a few years off my age now…
Yeah, me too. I look like I’ve aged thirty years in the last 10. I haven’t gotten many wrinkles but…I don’t. Something has changed and it’s not for the better!
Somehow lies always seem to come back and haunt us (or bite us in the…..well…you know) so I really do TRY to avoid telling one. Note the word “TRY”.
I have never lied about my age…. though sometimes I honestly forget how old I am when someone wants a quick answer. The years, they just fly by….
That’s funny. Kids are good lying about their ages. Actually, so are adults, as long as we are telling people we are YOUNGER.
So, let’s see. Until age 21, you lie UP. After 30, you lie DOWN. When you’re a kid, you do what your parents tell you to do. I think I got it!
Yes, and never make the assumption that your mother actually wants to get the senior discount!
I enjoy the retro comics! Just like refried beans…
Or reheated pizza! From four years ago……
With lies, like everything else in life, one thing leads to another…
What a tangled web we weave when first we choose to deceive….
Hey! I got carded at 7-11 tonight ! A bit flattering but give me a break!! They have a sign up they ask everyone even if they are 100! That’s crazy!
Where I work, it’s store policy to card anyone who appears 40 or younger for either ciggies (18) or beer (21… which makes no sense that you have to be older here to get drunk than smoke your lungs to death). You never know, there may be some really, really old looking teenagers out there!
Ya, I guess they can even look up too 100 yrs, old lol.. even though I’ve yet to see one!! 🙂
Bwahaha! Perspective can be a cruel thing.
