167--California: Christmas is for Kids
@ CherieSpotting     Dec 26 2003 - 13:48 PST
cherie writes: My nephew Tyler stared at me like I didn’t quite fit. I look like an adult, but I often act like a kid. My admirers call me “free spirited”; my critics call me “immature.” Realistically, I’m somewhere in between. But I’ve never been good with “moderation,” so if I have to error, I’ll lean towards being a kid. I’d much rather be silly than serious.

Tyler was confused. His face scrunched up like he had one too many Sour Patch Candies. Then Tyler ran over to me jumping up and down. Suddenly his 7-year-old mind had it all figured out!

“Auntie Cherie!” Tyler exclaimed. “Are you just a BIG kid?” (Note to all men--no woman likes to be called “big.”)

“Yes,” I told him. And Christmas is for kids. Even big kids, like me.
