Hindsight

Catch someone early enough, and he or she will accept anything as normal.

My paternal grandparents both died within a few months of one another at least fifteen years ago, when I was in my very early teens.  At that age, I knew very few adults, so I had no wider perspective against which to consider them as rounded individuals; to me they were merely a two-dimensional 'Nana' and 'Grandad', and any peculiarities went unnoticed.  For example, my grandfather was William, known to my grandmother as 'Mick'.  Her name was Mona, but my grandfather called her, er, 'Mick'.

Only now, in telling Helen, have I realised that might seem a little odd.  It's not that I forgot, I simply hadn't questioned it.
