Cara sat on the steps in the kitchen as I put together a fruit salad. "I heard that your brain does not slow down when you get older," she said. "Yeah. I heard that too," I said. "So ha! Turns out that it takes us longer to retrieve the information because we've got more of it, but we don't process more slowly. Yeah. I actually was going to tell you about that..."
She looked at me with a smile playing around her lips. "....but you forgot," she filled in.
I chopped on. "Yep," I said. "I forgot."
She just about fell off the steps laughing. Who raised that smart alec anyway?
