Selam has started saying this once in a while. “Today is the best day of my life.”
Today’s best day experience was at the University football game. The band plays “Call Me Maybe” now, which is just the coolest song ever when you’re almost 6. So in the second half, she went up and asked one of the drummers if they would play it again. The drummer asked the conductor and they made it happen. She was grinning ear to ear. The conductor came over and shook her hand and asked how old she was. She told him 5 and 11/12ths. He wished her a happy birthday. As we went back to our seats, she waved at the band and most of them waved back.
“Best Day of My Life.”
When you’re 5 and 11/12ths, what could be better?
