|A Family Resemblance?
Recently, we gathered at my Mother's home for a family meal. My nephew and his wife and baby were there. When we were finding our seats for dinner, my Mother said she would like for my nephew to sit beside her. She said that Brian's Dad had looked like her, and Brian looked like his Dad, so Brian looked like her, too. She then went on to say that since Brian's daughter, Linska, looked like her Dad (Brian), she resembled her (my Mom) too. Without batting an eyelash, my son Alan (precocious seven year old that he is) replied, "Well, Granny, she can't look like you." When my Mother asked him, "And why not?" he answered, "Well, you have wrinkles and she doesn't!"
Needless to say, we all (except my Mother) had quite a hearty laugh!
