Either my mirrors are defective or I have poor eyesight

It just occurred to me that I could appear to others much older than I imagine.

I am at an airport lounge where I observe a couple with an infant in, I presume, the husband's arms. Besides them, a daughter aged around 7.

I was in that situation circa 28 years ago. The interesting part is that I look at the couple and I feel like they could almost pass for my age mates. It would be logical only if their children were much older.

That leads me to conclude that I should consider changing my bathroom mirror. And I should also visit my optician more often. Either mtu mirror or my eyes are defective.

But as I like to say to my detractors, old people don't climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. You are as old as you feel.

Madaraka,Welcome back.
Judging from our recent visit to Butiyama and after experiencing your gracious hospitality , I think both your mtu mirror and eyesight need attention! Thank you for every thing with fond regards, Urmila Jhaveri
