New Bad, Bad Hair Day Winner
Remember Ali's Bad Hair Day of a few weeks ago? Here's an entry to make you contemplate the secrets of eternity and the complexities of the potential of years and years of psychoanalysis. It was her mother's first attempt at curling her hair, documented for all posterity to see. Hold the laughs please, out of kindness and sincere regard for the love of everything that requires compassion.
But this little chica, Sami, is tough. She belongs to my nephew and niece, Rhead and Annie Pao Cannon. My favorite Sami quote about karate lessons: She bragged about how good she was at karate and her brother commented how she was half Chinese. She responded, "I'm ALL Chinese." Nothing halfway about her.
I'm sure she's all ready on to the next challenge. In fact, I know that she has gone on to cure the common cold, brought the world the peace it deserves or at least has driven her brother crazier than anyone deserves to be.
And all the while making you want to kiss her silly on those cute chubby cheeks and those yummy, yummy lips. Thank you, God, for Sami.
Retired teacher, MaEd Counseling, Married, two adult sons, one fabulous daughter-in-law, two granddaughters. Trying like crazy to make something of retirement. I love getting up at 9AM and love hanging out wherever and whenever I choose, but I'm trying to add meaning. Meaning. Isn't that what we're all after?
