She takes you to get your nails done
in her fancy red sportscar
buys you bubblebath
and Ice Cream.
Oh wait, I had an Aunt like that, as a matter of fact, I still do. I'ts been a while, since we were anywhere just the two of us. October 21, 2000. Honestly. We went to some restaurant for lunch that was owned by one of the three tenors or something? Help me out here Aunt Deb! It was the day I was due to have #1. She used to take me to feed the ducks at a near by lake, go to garage sales, I'd spend the night in her condo (that smelled funny) I remember spending the night with her at one of her old boyfriends houses and sitting on the counter eating my first taste of scrambled eggs with cheese. He had a pool. And a motorcycle. Driving around in her red camaro...that she used to promise me I could have one day. One time we were driving down a back road and a little dog was in the road all alone. We lured it into the car with french fries (not the burnt ones, they were our favorite) and took him to grandpa's house. Grandpa obviously did not give Aunt Deb her animal loving traits....He made us take the dog back where we got it...THEN some lady came out of her house and thought we were just dumping off a dog...I think she ended up keeping it...? When I was in 6th grade, and I got my braces off, she gave me a huge basket of GUM. She took me to plays, movies, shopping, I was her maid of honor. She bought me my first mascara and some bleaching cream for the hair on my upper lip when I was in 7th grade. She used to have a tanning bed. In her condo. How. Cool. Was. That. She let me drive her car. When I was 12. She bought me Poison perfume. Two Words. Bill. Burger. I still talk to her every day. Sometimes we fight. And have a kind of "legal separation" for a week or so. We don't see eye to eye on alot of things, but I love her. And now, she takes my girls to feed the ducks, and to candy picnics, and for rides in her red jeep. To the movies, and out to lunch. Buys them shoes, pretty dresses, and lunchables.
