    Tales From the City

    That age-old story

    Fountain of youth? Font of disinformation

    One recent morning, I overheard the following conversation outside a Weight Watchers office in Boston. It was between an older woman and a youngish man.

    Woman: “So, you know my daughter?”

    Man: “Yes, but you look too young to be her mother.”
