Preserving a moment for children who are not my posterity

I have a couple kids in my life (not mine - don't worry, you haven't missed any big news on the child-bearing front) who have a deep and abiding love for (it may even be safe to use the term "obsession with") my moles.

Meg and Sally, I'm talking to you.

I accidentally took this totally serious selfie the other day, and was astonished at:

A) How green my eyes were that day  ... For those of you who've ever been wont to say that my eyes are brown: WRONG. They are hazel. Obviously.


B) Good heavens, I have a lot of flesh-colored moles on the left side of my face!

So much for me thinking those sweet little weirdos were... well, for lack of a better word, weirdos... for how they like to talk about/touch the many (MANY) moles on my face/neck/arms/etc. I am pretty bumpy, after all.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this selfie. Wow.

You may have aged just a bit since college, but not the 15 years the calendar shows. You look great.

You are THE NICEST! (It helps that my grey hairs were pulled back in a bun that night.) :-)

Thanks, dude. I love you!
