I'm just a little horse

 A pony with a cold was giving a speech to all the animals in the barnyard. Before he began he explained, "Excuse me, but I'm just a little hoarse."

Saturday evening, when all the kids were over for Sami's birthday, my eight year old grandson asked me this question:
     "Grandpa, are you in puberty?" 
     "No", I replied.  "I left puberty behind more than fifty years ago."
     "But, when your voice changes, isn't that when you're in puberty?" he asked.
     I explained to him that I had a cold and was just a little hoarse and that my voice would be back to normal in a couple of days.

that 8 year old has a tidy understanding of puberty.

Take good care of your cold.
