Do you have a Best Cousin? A Best Cousin is short for Best Cousin Friend or Best Friend Cousin. I'm not sure when, but I started calling my cousin Susana my Best Cousin long long ago.
Susana is about 11 months older than me, and she lived close enough that we got to play, hang out, have sleep overs often enough. We were even pen pals for a while - you know the age, when you think getting mail addressed to you is just about the best thing ever? And oh, man, did we play Barbies. We played Barbies so hard... We used Del Monte yogurt covered raisins as Barbie food, and now I'm so sick of yogurt covered raisins - I don't even like plain raisins anymore!
Well, yesterday I missed my Best Cousin's birthday. *sadface* I have a tenancy to catch that just a few days late - and I hate that my brain can't wrap around Susana's birthday. So, mi prima, Happy Belated Birthday! I hope it was one of much joy and happiness, or, if nothing else, a really nice meal with your family.
And, since I seem to be having problems figuring out the scanning this morning... I give you a picture of multiple cousins...
