I would like to know the meaning of "brushes my hair out of my eyes" in the next sentence.
I'm 65 and my mother brushes my hair out of my eyes.
There's an intriguing sub-text to this passage. The passage says a lot about the writer's relationship with his or her mother. A mother would normally only brush the hair out of her child's eyes. This mother still does this to a 65 year old. Clearly she still regards the writer as a slightly helpless child and the writer resents this while still tolerating it.
