Wizard and I routinely sit down after sahoor and have random chats from dhikr to childhood memories etc.
Yesterday we realized that Monster's new bike will be delivered soon and we wondered how lucky she is that she's not even three and she got her first bike. He asked me when I had my first one. "I probably had a tricycle when I was around 4 I guess because I have clear first memories of riding around the driveway of the house I grew up in," I told him. "But my first real bike, a BMX, I got when I was 10...ish."
"Hmm, I got my first bike when..." Wizard pretended to think. "Wait, I never had a first bike! Cetin [Youngest BIL] got his when he was 4, and all of us three older brothers took turns riding it. Bedri [Older BIL] was 17 and he was forcing his body to fit the bike and managed to still ride it around while Cetin watched. I wonder why it didn't break right away!"
I was laughing so hard, I had stitches in my jaw and tears running down my eyes.
Then this morning, he managed to almost get me crying with laughter again.
We were talking about Julia Roberts getting older and I told him how she reportedly feels better about her age when she thinks that if she's getting older, Richard Gere is also getting even older! My sister shared this with me this piece of gem and yeah we decided (she and I) that we should look at more ancient people to feel better about ourselves getting older.
Wizard looks at me, amused and asks "So are you thinking that when you get old, I must be getting older?"
Uhh.....not really but...
"I'm like wine baby, I'll get better with age. You can't compare youself to me."
