The backstory: We were sitting around supper on our last evening in California, reviewing the indignities of airline travel, especially the red tape that is the TSA. I was expressing my usual objections to the removal of belts and shoes when others chimed in.
KO: I thought that older people don't have to take off their shoes anymore.
My Mom: That's only if you are 75 or older.
KO: Ahhh, you could pass for that, Mom.
