I just completed my online application for Medicare. I used to think you had to be pretty old for that, but apparently, even young people like me are required to sign up. I’m wondering how this will change my life. Will people be more patient with me now, knowing that I am officially old? Will I still have to wait in line at airports? Will people make a space for me on the front row of the second section of the movie theater so I can put my feet on the rail? I always try to get there super early so I can sit in that row, and I’m darned disappointed when it’s already filled.
When my Medicare card comes in the mail, I wonder if I will be as excited as when I got my driver’s license? I’m thinking NOT.
