Day 157 – September 11, 2014

Tuesday afternoon, I saw a 4:45pm movie at the Sundance Kabuki Theater. Although seats were assigned, only six of us sat for the matinee screening. I was the only one under 60. The cute pair of ladies next to me leaned over to ask, “Young man, would you like our popcorn?”

Yesterday, I looked through the listings for San Francisco’s education classes. This October, I would like to take swimming and ceramics.

I need soon to obtain a library card. I’m discovering cheap lunches and discount early-bird dinners.

For Burning Man, Greg dyed part of his hair blue.

Matinee movies, ceramics, early-bird dinners, blue hair? I have joined the legion of the elderly. This year’s sabbatical is not a spring-break vacation, but rather an early retirement in Boca Raton.

I’m learning that elderly pick their activities and routines not necessarily due to age, but just that the aged have had a lifetime to optimize wisely their free time. I shall follow the secrets of the elderly. I best brush up on my canasta.
