Does this gray hair make me look old?

I’m not sure whether to be pleased or insulted.  As I interviewed his mother during a history and physical, the young Hawaiian boy pulled at my sleeve to ask questions.

You may remember my “mini” Hawaiian lesson:  Tutu or Auntie is the honorific for an older woman, an expression of respect.  Tutu specifically means “Grandmother.”

As he pulled at my sleeve, he looked up and said “Tutu, is my mommy sick?”

I wonder if Clairol is on sale this week…..
