twenty[one] years later
my newborn sister, 1984
today is my little sister's birthday. i never could have imagined holding her in the hospital back then that twenty one years later, we'd be in college together, and, for that matter, almost havingher beat me through. my sister and i joke about our "worlds colliding", a term from the sitcom seinfeld meant to define what happens when different parts of you life merge that usually remain separated, such as family, and college. i am however glad that i could be here to celebrate her birthday with her and make sure she didn't get too "tanked" happy birthday sis.
