Getting old ain't so bad. With senior status comes many benefits in addition to the discounted fares and tickets. You will notice that your friends and family may grant you greater leeway when you exhibit one of your annoying habits. They will perhaps wait a trifle longer before cutting you off while you are repeating one of the boring stories that you have told them several times before. As you again postpone until tomorrow what you promised to do for them today, they may not even sigh. The only thing better than achieving senior status is getting rich. In both cases what used to be seen as aberrant behavior is now fondly referred to as eccentricity. The difference is that with wealth comes the means to take full advantage of the new license that one has attained.
