A few years back, we had been explaining to Sosi what New Year’s was and how people celebrated it. We told her people liked to have parties and get a little crazy. We showed her videos of fireworks, people in Times Square etc.
Somewhere the wires got crossed. She came running back a few moments later, her hands were flapping, there may have been underwear on her head, maybe a pillow in her shirt… and she screamed “Happy New York Day!!” in a crazy accent. I can’t think about it and not laugh. I don’t know what possessed my normally shy and self conscious little girl to bust out like this, but it was so amazing. We’ve been saying “Happy New York Day!” ever since.
I hope you all had a Happy New York Day. I will be back here regularly soon. We have been taking some much needed time together.
