When I was in 6th or 7th grade, I was coming out of the deep end of the water and slipped into my mother’s dressing gown, which I had borrowed because it was so soft.

Towards me, from the other end of the pier, came my friend’s mother. As she came closer, she exclaimed: ”Is it YOU? I didn’t recognize you from afar. Golly, I thought it was an 18- year old or so”.

And she made me soooooooo happy, because I really wanted to be an adult (and to me, an 18 year old was an adult).

It just shows how very, very, very little I knew.
