5 reasons those of us who came later look up to *

  1. Tired of waiting for her mother, she enrolled herself in kindergarten, then took off on her tricycle to the park about a mile away
  2. At the age of 7, without any parental knowledge or adult supervision, she and another small child rode the bus to the state fair (this is actually her story that one no one else has any direct knowledge of, but we're giving it to her anyway)
  3. At some unstated age, she fell victim to an improper backcast that caught her lower lip with a fish hook (as much as we might have delighted at the thought of a minnow, worm, or even manure on the hook, we know better)
  4. At yet another unstated age, in a highly touted victory over spaghetti (her most despised food), she put an entire plate of the stuff in the cold air duct where it remained undiscovered for many months (maybe years)
  5. She was actually a foreign exchange daughter, the original one having been traded to the Gypsies due to bad behavior

Just for the record, there are tons more reasons.

* I edited out the name after I posted this.
