Who cares, so what?

Dear Short Answers:
I married very late in my life (in my late 50s) to a much younger woman. Shortly after I turned 60, we had our first baby. I was skeptical at first but now I am thrilled. The problem is that everyone assumes it is my grandchild. What do I say when people comment “what a cute grandchild” or ask “how old is your grandchild?” I’m stumped for a comeback.
Happy, But Off My Game

Dear Game:
First, congratulations — we are very happy for you.  As for the strangers who misconstrue?  It doesn’t matter.  Smile amiably and tell them the answer to their question.. It wasn’t about you.
