Be careful what you wish

When I was about 14, our family doctor was a man in his early thirties, and I was deeply impressed by the way he looked.
I especially admired the rather pronounced vertical folds on both sides of his mouth, and I remember wishing one day I'd look like he did.

My wish came true gradually, and now I have had very similar folds in my face for a long time.

What I hadn't realised was that the man was bald...

Meanwhile a few years ago my next generation said he hoped he would ever look like me.
Aww shame.
He is losing his hair rapidly now, but no sign of the desired skin folds.
As our beloved Sindy would say: 's Not fair!
