Something Fishy

I'm not sure exactly when it happened, but I have wrinkles. Crow's feet around the eyes, and laugh lines around my mouth. I generally don't think about them much, but I am aware of their existence.

A while back, Kemper said to me, "Mommy, you have ****** when you smile". (The ****** indicates an indecipherable word.) Kemper frequently seems to mumble, or maybe just talk too softly, so I said, "What?" Again, he said, "You have ****** when you smile". We went back and forth like this for several exchanges, until I finally understood him. He was telling me I have gills when I smile.
