My god-son thinks pictures of Audrey Hepburn are pictures of me.

A few months ago, unprompted mind you, he pointed to her face which was floating as a screen-saver on my laptop, and cried, “Munkle!"

I fell on the floor in a fit of ecstasy. It made my life.

Of course I proliferated this mix-up of his by getting out my “Audrey: a life” (cue cheesy Moon River music) book and forcing him to look at all of them, prodding him to tell me I looked like her again and again and again.

I am shameless in my admission of this.

One day he will realize his Munkle isn’t exactly as superfluously beautiful as the
venerated Audrey Hepburn... but that is years away.
