Aging gracefully: a conversation with my daughter

Scene: Our kitchen, Wednesday morning, everyone in various stages of getting ready.

Me: Hey Fiona, I’m speaking on a panel today. How do I look?

Fiona: Great! Except for here. [points under her eye]

Me: What, the mascara I put on my lower lashes? Too much?

Fiona: No, lower, under that. You made it too dark.

Me: Umm…I didn’t do that. Those are just the dark bags under my eyes from being tired and getting old. And having kids.

Fiona: Oh. Well then, you look good.

Me: Sigh.
