Old folk wit and wisdom

I don't know about the "day late" part, but lately I seem to be "a dollar short" quite often.

Does that make me a half-wit?

Technically it makes you without either wit or without wisdom.

Taking a direct correlation since you seem to not be a day late you would therefore have wit.

If you are a dollar short (and I am certainly familiar with that circumstance) you (and I) would be lacking wisdom.

But I don't think the direction correlation works. I think we should just focus on the Old folk clause. Being a dollar short means that we are not old folk. Yet!

That works better for me.

Being a dollar short just means you aren't very tall.
