'What is a Senior Citizen?' A5 Greeting Card
One of our most popular verses! - What is a Senior Citizen?
"A Senior Citizen is one who was here before;
the pill, television, frozen foods,
contact lenses, credit cards .....
and before man walked on the moon.
For us, "Time Sharing" meant togetherness,
not holiday homes,
and a "chip" meant a piece of wood.
"Hardware" meant nuts and bolts,
and "Software" wasn't even a word.
We got married first, then lived together,
and thought cleavage was something butchers did.
A "stud" was something that fastened a collar to a shirt,
and "going all the way" meant
staying on a double decker to the bus depot.
We thought "fast food" was what you ate in Lent;
a "Big Mac" was an oversized raincoat
and "crumpet" we had for tea.
In our day; "grass" was mown,
"pot" was something you cooked in,
"coke" was kept in the coal house and
a "joint" was cooked on Sundays!
We are today's SENIOR CITIZENS.
A hardy bunch when you think
how the world has changed!
