My Awesome Aunt
I visited my aunt today. She is by far one of the coolest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Out of four children, she being the youngest, she is by far the strongest mentally, socially, and spiritually. I love going over to her house (not just because of the high speed internet access) because she brings great conversation. She has three children: One who can be really nosy, one with a ridiculous infatuation with Hannah Montana, and one with a crazy obsession with Transformers. And out of this house, she is about the only normal one. Whenever I go over there, I am greeted with love and hugs and, most importantly FRESH TEA. If there should be one thing you know about me, let it be that I simply LOVE having tea parties. And I mean, TEA PARTIES. Gotta have the tea pot, tea cups, sugar, the works. I just recently bought my aunt a small set of tongs to pick up sugar cubes with. she had always wanted a pair and I finally found something similar. It is not necessarily a set of tongs, it is actually a tea bag squeezer, but it can double as a pair of tongs. Anyway, she loves anything I get her. She is not one to judge on such menial things. She appreciates the fact that you took the time to stop and think about her for a change. She was appreciative in the same way the day I gave her an elephant (her favorite animal) pendant. She loves it and she could not believe I had gotten it for her. It is just one of those small things in life that makes a person happy.
