"I saw a woman the other day. She had the most beautiful Mom hands."

"What ever could you mean?"

"You know, Mom hands. Muscular. Worn. Short fingernails. Able."

"I suppose so."

"There may have been an age spot or two. And veins, you could see the veins."

"They sound quite the opposite of beautiful."

"Hm. ... Sometimes I fear I'll never have Mom hands. You know?"

"I suppose so."
