Crossing the seas

We sent them off to China. By ‘we’, I mean my mom and I, and by ‘them’, I mean Laolao and Laoye. They were adorable, with their fanny packs and sunglasses, and they were so excited. It is impossible to not feel fuzzy inside when one sees an old couple, all wrinkly and pruney and very much still in love. They support each other as they hobble around together, hand in hand. One sees how happy they are, and aspires to find that someone who will grow old with you…

We waved until their wheelers pushed them behind the security portal, past the luggage check, and off onto an adventure.
