One of these kids is doing her own thing

I tan easily.  Really easily, and really well.   When I was a little girl I would run around outside all summer long, turning a lovely bronze color.  People would ask which Native American tribe I came from.  In college, when I spent lots of time teaching swimming and lifeguarding at outdoor pools, I was once mistaken for a Latina and another time for an Iranian (by an Iranian woman!).

When I married, I married into a family dominated by gingers and freckles.  One year (after teaching swimming lessons all summer) my mother-in-law had family photos taken.  I was the only in-law at the time, so the photo of the “kids” was me, my husband, and his siblings.  To this day, when I look at the photo, the song “One Of These Things” (is not like the others) from Sesame Street comes to mind.  Sometimes being different isn’t so hard.

Do I have an accent?

Last month I traveled to Las Vegas for a photography workshop.  It was a great time, and the weather was amazing.  So comfortably warm and gorgeous in the winter!  I hadn’t been out that way for a while, so hearing the twang in the locals’ speech was a treat.  It made me miss my west coast home!

Last month I also had someone tell me that I had, “the cutest little accent”.  That’s an unanticipated perk to living on the east coast!  I get to sound cute.

 

Photos from my Vegas trip.

I say potato

When my youngest was a baby I took him to an evening appointment at the doctor.

As I was dressing the baby after the exam the doctor said to me, “And what are you doing about salads?”

“I’m sorry?” I said, thinking that I must’ve misheard him since staying up with a sick baby for a few days had exhausted me and I could only seem to focus on getting the baby’s arm into his sleeve and why on earth would my baby be eating salad?

“Salads. What are you doing about them?”

I must have looked lost because he made eye contact and said, “Salad foods…has he started any?”

“Oh!” I said, “No he hasn’t.”

I got it! SOLID foods! Thanks to his New England accent the family practitioner thought I was a dimwit.  Good times in Yankee land.

My grandma wasn’t George Foreman

My junior year in high school our family hosted an exchange student from Germany.  At Christmastime we traveled to my aunt’s house to celebrate.  I introduced my exchange sister to our extended family and then we settled in for dinner.  A few minutes later she leaned over to me and said, “Isn’t it kind of strange that your dad’s sisters have the same name?”

“What?” I asked.

“You said they’re both called Annie. Weird, right?”

“Oh! No, it’s Auntie Bev and Auntie Sue.” I explained.

Poor girl, trying to make sense of our American accents.

 

Photos of a little baby bump, the contents of which will call me Auntie.
