My sister’s wedding is one week from Saturday. They asked me today if I would give a speech about her. I have a rather poor memory and I’m sure this will strain it to the max. Of course it doesn’t help that for the past five years the family has been living just about 1000 miles away from me so I haven’t had many memories of Susanna at all! So not only do I have to try to dredge up memories, but I also need to do error-checking to make sure I’m remembering the right sister (since I do, after all, have three of them). I’m going to have to use my mom as a fact-checker!
We are probably so accustomed to seeing bonsai trees that we don’t think much about them. But have you ever paused to consider how strange and freakish they really are?
