When we did something slightly risky, she would exclaim "Why mothers get gray!"

Years later, we were in a Chinese restaurant, and I urged mother and father to split an order, since the portions were huge. She wouldn't, and when more food came than they could eat, she acted shocked. I said, "Why daughters get gray!", and she declared that she had never said that in her life. Sure she had.
