I am getting ready for next week's trip to New York, so this will be a short post, but I did want to point out one very important thing:
Thursday (4/6) will be Sammy Keyes's birthday!
How old this year?
Well, I'd say she's turning "thirteen all over again," but if you're a Sammy fan you already know that she has managed to (finally) put that number behind her. We think.
I hope you'll take a moment during your day on Thursday to wish Sammy a happy birthday in whatever form suits you. Take a shortcut. Ride a skateboard. Wear high-tops. Boycott fuzzy pink sweaters. Maybe even mix up some mac'n'cheese'n'salsa. (It is, in fact, god-like.)
If you want to post or send me pictures, I would love that.
And please know that I'm grateful for this community, where I'm not alone in thinking Sammy's birthday should be celebrated.
See you soon!
