I still remember your first week in kindergarten. We were standing outside your classroom, looking at your extra sharp nose standing out among all the others. I know how it feels to have a generously endowed nose among those who hardly have.
You had then asked me, “Why are all my friends small-eyed? Their eyes are so small.” We told you, “Don’t say that in front of others, especially that aunty you always meet outside.” But we couldn’t stop laughing. You must have been very confused. -
