A week ago I was lying on the couch snuggling with one of our granddaughters. All of a sudden she started to giggle, and she kept touching my arm. "What," I said, "is so funny?" "Nama, " she said, "WHY do you have so much skin on your arms ?" all the while playing with my arm as if she were smooshing a piece of play doh!! Then she started picking up the skin on my hands!!!! This brought on even more giggles. But the worst was when she put that little hand to my neck to touch the skin that hangs just a bit, looked me in the eyes, and just smirked.
I will grant you the years have reduced the elasticity in my skin, BUT, did I really need to be reminded of it by a SIX YEAR old?!!!! I mean, seriously….now I am looking for clear duct tape to wrap around my neck and pull it up to behind my ear lobes. NOT funny!
Yeah, like I said, the truth hurts…..hmmm, probably not as much as removing the duct tape will hurt. Maybe I ought to reconsider.
Have a peaceful day!
