Old,. but not broken

So, there we were at the Dallas Museum of Art, at the King Tut exhibit.  Before you enter the chambers containing the intact artifacts from King Tut's tomb, you walk though rooms containing stuff from other finds.  We were standing beside a statue of Ramses II with broken ears.

"Appa," asked S2, "why is this thing broken?"

"It's very old," I told her, "and things start to break when they get old."

"You are old," she asked with question in her voice, "and you are not broken yet."

Thanks, dear.
