“You mean she’s really old?”
“Well, yes, I mean ‘older’.”

“Not nice, Mags …”
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, but is she that old?”
What would we do without the endless entertainment provided by our youth. We hope you are all well, and getting all the ice cream–of whatever brand–you and your families need to get you through this.
