Welcome To The Cheap Seats

I bought a cinema ticket this evening and was given a discount for being old. It was as momentous an occasion in its way as the time I legally bought my first pint of beer in a pub but nowhere near as exciting.

This week I also received, through the post, a bowel cancer screening kit from the NHS as I now qualify for a free checkup every two years. I shall probably ignore the request for a sample of my poo but I shall not be ignoring any discounts that I am offered.

I shall only be old when it suits me.

  1. What a silly priority you’ve chosen. Ignore bowel screening at your peril. Many lives have been saved by this free NHS programme which other countries envy
