5 year old watches the mirror intently as I comb and exclaims, “Look, grey hair!”
The mirror reflects my mother next to a younger me.
I share this story about her grandchild with Mum. “I feel I am 5 again, only wiser.”
She answered, “I don’t feel any wiser but I too am 5 today.”
Every day I hurriedly comb my first-born’s hair before the mad dash to car. It is a day off from school so my kid returns the favour but exclaims, “Look, grey hair!”
I call my mother, “I feel l am 5 again, only wiser”.
She said, “Without feeling any wiser, I too am 5 today.”
