    We have discovered that one reason why adults do not have young looking skin, is they have lost an energy of youth that allows young children to self-revitalize water, and adults cannot. Once in a while, I still get carded when I try to buy certain well-guarded cold medicines, so I was taken aback in recent months when two different strangers asked, “Is that your grandson?” I was most surprised by the instant assumption, without an awkward pause or hesitation, as if grandmother was the only option.
