Today is Pippa’s sixteenth birthday, which means that she gets a BONUS POST all about her!
Pippa, you should be very proud of yourself for making it to sixteen. I must admit that I thought my attempts to finish you off when you were a young child would be a success. Kidding! But if you look back at all that I did (slamming your hand in the screen door, breaking your finger with the window seat, cutting your head open when I pushing you into the coffee table, etc), they were largely accidents.
Along with the two CDs I gave you, which I promptly uploaded onto my computer (They’re both quite good, by the way), I have made you a list of some things that you can do at sixteen that you couldn’t do before.
1. Get your permit/license at school (but not at home)
2. Donate blood (because you love needles)
3. Drop out of school
4. Get an adult job and retire your never successful lemonade-selling ventures
5. Say you’re sixteen without lying
One last thing: Remember our dance routine to this song that we used to perform with the gang when I was ten and you were eight? I think it involved wearing bathing suit tops with velour bell-bottoms and jumping up and down on my bed. Anyways, it’s applicable now!
