A drabble is a very short story of exactly 100 words. Feel free to join in and write your own drabbles on Fridays and tag them with “friday drabble” and on Twitter with the hashtag #fridaydrabble.
The picture is old. Black and white from a time that I think should be in color. I am the same age as the picture, but I am not old.
You were always old to me. As a boy, you were a grown man. Whiskers and strong arms and dark hair. As a grown man, you were an old man. Slack skin and bad hearing and cancer.
I hold the old picture. A fragile thing now saved on disk and drive and cloud that will endure. In it, you are younger than I am now. And I am not old.
