Freckles VS Grams

{In this Moment with Grams}

I’m sitting with my grandmother in the car when she turns to me and says, “You should laser your freckles. Have them removed, you’ll be much prettier.”

After years of hating the spots on my face, I finally accepted my freckles, “Ma, I like my freckles.”

“No, they’re not pretty. Ask your aunt to take take you and have them laser it off.”

I laughed and told her that my boyfriend likes my freckles, she responded in an exasperated voice, “Ahhhh… NO, if you have them removed, you’ll have a boyfriend.”

Funny right?? But she was serious.
