Cape Cod – Day 4 – Vicky’s Old Lady Face
When my maternal grandmother was alive, sometimes I would ask her what’s wrong. “You look tired,” I would say.
“I’m OLD!” she would reply, “This is what it looks like when you get OLD!!!!”
Over a decade after her death, I do have some support to my notion that being tired can make one look old. I wasn’t that misguided afterall!
After a morning run and a long day at the North Shore, I was sunburnt and tired at suppertime. Carolyn, Clint, Ryan and I ate at The Tavern at the Chatham Bars Inn. My sister took me offguard and snapped this picture of me:

My face not only surprised my dinner companions, but also brought them a source of amusement as they waited for their entrees to arrive. Each person took a turn trying to pose with my “old lady face”. Carolyn seemed to have the most difficult time mimicking me. It took her five tries. I believe Clint and Ryan, prodigies that they are, each made one attempt.
