On our block, there is a family with a lovely au pair. She’s 25 and getting married next month to a guy she met since she’s been here. She’ll have her associates degree any day now and will work toward her bachelors…. Really, she’s a great girl.
So we’re talking this morning at the bus stop. Turns out I’m older than her mother. Yikes. It’s always hard to hear ‘you look great for your age’ but I was ready for it. What she said, instead, was sweet. ‘I hope I look as good as you. You look so beautiful.’
Nice way to start the day, no?
