This January 29th reminds me of my youngest child who not only turns nineteen today but is also the silliest person I can think of this Sunday.
Erica, aka Bear or Erca, loves to snap goofy pictures of herself and post them on my cell phone. She also enjoys playing with my computer's photo shop, or at least she did years ago. One of my favorite shots is when she barged in on my parents' honey moon.
Wherever we go, she's great fun to have around, especially when she teams up with her brother to do the college strut. The two of them headed down the sidewalk as if they owned the place. Judy, my middle child, respectfully pretended not to know them as strangers stared. Erica said, "They're looking because they're jealous."
She also once called her brother's cell phone and said, "I'd like a cheese pizza and an order of chicken wings."
He said, "Erca! This is your brother."
Without missing a beat, my baby replied, "Da-nel. When you start working at Papa Johns?"
In case you missed it the first time, here's Erca and Wilberfoss giving a news report.
Don't you wish you could be silly too... or just turning nineteen? Happy Birthday, Erica!
