Dear Future Me,
When you are old I hope you have learned that saying to the mother of a newborn “oooh she looks just like my nan who has had a stroke” is maybe not the thing she wants to hear. Even if it is the truth. It was the gurning you see. In my head I was simply fascinated by the identical basic brain behaviours in both a newborn and elderly brain. But yeah- I hope you have now learned that “oooh isn’t she the cutest thing ever” or words to that effect is a more appropriate response.
Anyhow when you are old I really hope you look like this, all wrinkled, wise and gurning
and a bit scary. Because that would be cool and wrinkles are awesome. I’m stopping applying my “woman of a certain age” nightcream in anticipation
Lots of gurning love
P.S I have NO idea where this picture of FutureMe came from. If anyone does please tell me- I’d like to credit it!
