She paused and then put a curve in one place and another curve beside it. Carefully, then, she tied the lines together, did some shading, and ended up with the perfect solution to the problem.

I was impressed and remarked, “And all it took was a few minutes.”

“Yes,” she replied, as she looked at me and smiled, “That and twenty years.”

I learned something that day.
