I do not like winter
"I do not like winter!", said my 80-ish Aunt the other day as we were exiting a restaurant to my car.
me: And you lived here all your life. What are you doing here then?
A: I used to like winter. In the evening, I'd call my friend Rosie. "Rosie. Skating?" We'd go skating. I liked that.
me: How long did you go skating?
A: Til I was about 25.
me: 25? What about the other 60 years since then?
