Water For Old Folks

My nieces went to McDonalds with my mom.

She ordered a "senior water."

Huh. Being older, and presumably wiser than me, my mom must have been hipped to a secret about water I wasn't privy to. Is there some sort of distinct water recipe reserved for senior citizens? Specially distilled and aged like a fine wine? A mummified keg of water on tap, blended with nutrition and laxatives? Lawrence Welk bubbles popping off the top of the barrel? And cheaper than free? Can't beat that bargain.

I dwelled. Came up blank. Perhaps she was asking to speak to the assistant manager, Senor Water. But that didn't sound right.

She received her senior water. Discounted at extra free. I bet it tasted like liquid gold.

I can't wait 'til I can order a senior water.


  1. I hope she got the AARP discount on top of that. Her meal should have been free!

  2. Sounds like there's a secret Fountain of Youth back there in the McDonald's kitchen, and your mom cleverly sussed it out. Keep an eye on her, she may be getting younger. :)
