- Me: Basically, what happened was... "Basically" — ha, listen to me. I sound like Pop Pop.

Hi, I'm Laura. Arthur is my friend. He's an 88-year-old retired English professor who lives in Manhattan. Bernie was my Pop Pop. He was a business owner in small-town Pennsylvania until he passed away at 96. Me, I'm a writer studying to be a gerontologist, and I'm 31. I blog about intergenerational friendship for AARP. My work has appeared in People, Good Housekeeping, JANE and more.
