Yesterday, Teresa the five-year-old asked whether men grow beards when they are old or when they are young. About to reply, “When they are older,” Jacinta suddenly thought to inquire about how old old might be. “Is Uncle Robert older or younger?” she asked.
Teresa laughed. “He’s older than Papa! Because he’s bigger!”
Robert is more than a decade younger than I am, but I have to admit that he’s bigger.
