While standing in line one little girl said to a freckled boy next to her, "You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint on your face!"

Embarrassed, the little boy dropped his head and began to cry. His grandmother knelt down next to him. "I love your freckles! When I was a little girl, I always wanted freckles." She than took her finder and traced it around the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful."

The boy looked up. "Really?" he asked hesitantly.

The little boy thought for a moment and peered directly into grandmother's face and softly whispered, "Wrinkles."
