It is June on Coronado island and it means one thing…lot’s of coupons and limping.
Many of my older friends from Phoenix have made the long 6 hour shlep from the heat in Phoenix to the ‘June Gloom’ of San Diego. To my kids, I am old, but to me, 60 is old … just so you have a frame of reference.
There is lot’s of herding around Breugers Bagel’s in the morning, and Panera Bread at lunch. In the evening, there is pill taking, arguments about who owes who what and talk of grandkids. It is somewhat predictable and I love it. The island goes from a place where I know few, to PHOENIX.
The big talk of the over 60 jewish internet crowd is ‘Restaurant.com’ and I think when the men huddle up alone Jdate. There is nothing like printing out $100 of restaurant coupons for $20 if you are over 60. I have emailed restaurant.com and told them to start a jewish social network called ‘DelBocaVista.com’. No response.
I dropped a BOMB on the group the other day with one word… ‘Groupon’. They all pulled out there pens, papers and motorola Star Tac’s to jot it down. I am surprised that Groupon did not experience server issues.
If I learn to use Foursquare (Congrats to the team and Union Square ) and explain it to the group, it’s game over. I can picture this mob walking into Panera with their new smartphones in hand, fighting for mayorship and flashing their screens at the counter asking for discounts.
PS – I think my Pneumonia is passing.
