Could Have Been a Belly Dancer

The brown-eyed blonde, looking disarmingly seductive for a 5 year old, is my niece and goddaughter. For Halloween that year she wanted to be a belly dancer. Thinking that might scandalize her Mom, she told her she wanted to be a desert person. [Didn't fool Mom for a minute.] Her 7 year old sister, the rock star, is now a popular 4th grade teacher and her big brother, the 9 year old skeleton is a financial wiz.
The belly dancing career never panned out. Instead she will be graduated from The College of William and Mary in mid-May having partaken of every imaginable sport and completing double majors in art history and biology. She is a fascinating young woman and I eagerly await seeing what career path she will choose.

Haven't heard from any of 'em, so I guess they're cool with it. Having said that, I'll see the brown-eyed blonde next weekend -- may get an earfull. . .
