I saw a father and his two sons walking up 238th street this morning on my way to work. The two boys were on either side of him and couldn’t have been older than four or five.
As I passed them one of the boys said, “Daddy, how does a one hundred-year-old-man walk?”
The father smiled but I didn’t hear him answer.
That’s a good question, I thought.
“Slowly,” I wanted to answer but they were already gone.
