  • I'll sit here.

  • OK.

  • What'll we talk about?

  • My name is Gloria.

  • How are you?

  • My name's Lucia.

  • Lucia? That's a beautiful name and you're a gorgeous looking girl.

  • What's the best thing about being old?

  • People are nicer to you when you're older.

  • I don't really think, to be quite truthful, there's an awful lot going for being older.

  • Will you swap?

  • Well, I'd swap with you in a heartbeat.

  • I don't know how you'd swap being an adult.

  • No, I don't know either.

  • But it would be nice, wouldn't it?

  • You could swap around-

  • if I could be you for a few days and you could be me.

  • You'd have to go home and cook the dinner-

  • and look after the dog.

  • I have a beautiful dog.

  • Would you like that?

  • I'd like it when I'm an adult but-

  • not when I'm still a child.

  • Not when you're seven. That's lovely.

  • What's the best thing about being young?

  • You get to play with your friends-

  • and play with your best friends.

  • And who's your best friend?

  • Actually, I have two best friends-

  • Leo and Heather.

  • Leo is a big brother-

  • that's kind of like a twin for me-

  • because he was born on the same day as me-

  • but not from my mom.

  • Do you wish you're young? Why?

  • Oh! Because when you're young, you have great times-

  • you have loads and loads of friends-

  • and you're out all the time.

  • You don't have all these responsibilities.

  • You know what responsibilities are?

  • Yeah, chores.

  • Yes, exactly!

  • Very, very good, honey.

  • Go off to dances and pictures and parties-

  • so that's why I would love to be younger again.

  • But you'd still have to listen to your mom.

  • You're right. You always have to listen to your mom.

  • When you fall in love, darling, what will it be like?

  • I fell in love with Leo.

  • You didn't tell me he was your boyfriend

  • you just said he was a friend.

  • He was my best friend but-

  • then I just fell in love with him.

  • When the time comes when you're allowed to ask-

  • boys with girls

  • if they want to marry you-

  • I'm going to ask him to marry me.

  • Did you fall in love? What was it like?

  • Well, I fell in love a few times

  • but when I fell in love with Callum. That's my husband outside,

  • it was fabulous.

  • He's a very funny man-

  • and he makes me laugh. He still makes me laugh-

  • and that's what I love about him still.

  • Does getting old scare you?

  • No.

  • Why do you think it doesn't scare you?

  • I don't wish to be old straight away

  • but I do want to be old

  • but I don't wish to be old straight away.

  • Does getting older scare you?

  • Yeah.

  • Getting old does scare me a bit.

  • When you get older, you get more sick.

  • and-

  • you're not as quick on your feet. You can't run-

  • and you can't do loads of things that you used to be able to do

  • Yeah, getting old is scarier.

  • It is. Without a shadow of a doubt.

  • I know what always makes me happy when I'm sad-

  • with my mom when I look like this-

  • and it makes my mom laugh-

  • then it makes me start laughing!

  • Can I copy that?

  • Yeah!

  • You go like this?

  • Yeah, like this-

  • That's making me dizzy!

  • I don't think I can do that!

  • The only thing I can tell you is-

  • to take every chance-

  • and every opportunity.

  • Enjoy everything-

  • and have a fabulous, fabulous life.

  • I will!

  • and I hope you and Leo are going to be very, very, very happy

  • but enjoy life, that's the most important thing-

  • to really, really enjoy life.

  • So, first you-

  • you're looking at your nose

  • then you go-

  • back to looking at your nose.

  • Like that?

  • Yeah.

I'll sit here.
