Ten years ago when my sister turned 21 my mom, dad, and I drove to Auburn to surprise her. We brought buckets of wings and kegs of beer. We called all of her friends and showed up to party. The night was fun, I was 16 and my mom let me drink beer. I remember some guy setting the front yard on fire, I remember smoking Newports and getting made fun of by the college people. I remember taking care of my mom who had 5 too many. I remember my sister taking my dad out to Bourbon Street with her girlfriends and dancing on the bar. I remember it was a blast and I was so proud to be her sister and let everyone know I was related to such a cool, pretty girl. All of her friends thought our parents were so cool! That was me 10 years ago. Sister on the left.
