'Ayah, what are the signs of people getting old?', Adik tanya ke aku.

'There are a lot. People grow weak, sickly, white hair, falling teeth. A lot of people experience that. Some will experience only one or two of those', jawab aku selamba.

'For you Ayah, how would you know when you are getting old', Adik tanya lagi.

'What was my question? Never mind Ayah. I got the point', jawab Adik selamba.
'Oh yea.. another sign is that the children are more forgiving to certain lapses by the parents.. hehehe ', aku jawab sambil tersenyum
