Much later I walk by the mall information kiosk and smile at the young woman attendant and tell her she's looking good.
"Every time I see you I think you're so beautiful" she tells me
I beam at her for saying that
"Not bad for an older lady right?"
"You re not old" she frowns while still keeping her smile
"Just turned 56"
"You don't look it at all. What's your secret?"
"Cream your face every day" I tell her "that and be happy with yourself"
