Senior Moment

The Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa came up with the notion that requiring me to prove I'm really 55 and not a 20 year old who combed Naicerg Formula into his beard will reduce underage drinking. The most noticable impact of this ordinance is that I rarely buy my beer anywhere inside 'Tosa, but last night the grocery there was uniquely convenient. When the checker keyed in a birthdate for me as required (she presumed to do so without checking my ID) the red stripe coupon printer generated one for me for Ensure nutritional beverage. I hope she arbitrarily put in a birth year much earlier than mine, and neither she nor the marketers of Ensure actually think I'm ready for the stuff.

I dunno, it's being marketed as a health supplement for "active adults" now, aka a protein shake for people who don't have time to eat.

Don't do it. It tastes FOUL. :)

Maybe if you mixed it with the beer... Ack -- no. That's a terrible idea... :P
