The lighting on my Zoom calls is either unflattering or sadly accurate.

On my Zoom calls, I can only stare at the dark circles under my eyes.

My face reminds of a cadaver.

Did I die and is all eternity going to be spent on Zoom?

Is this purgatory? Or hell?

Maybe I just need an under eye cream.

With the circles combined with my specks of gray hair I look ancient.

I thought my son was calling my "Abuelo" because that's one of the few male characters in one of his favorite TV shows.

But no, he sees my weathered face.

He knows.
