Twenty one years ago today, another woman pushed a couple of screaming redheads into the world and today I celebrate the birth of the pretty one.
(actually I think her brother is blonde, but that ruins the story so redheads it is)
Ring in Ranga, who from henceforth now that she can legally drink alcohol in America – seriously, what is the fucking significance of 21 in Australia any more? – will be known by her actual name, Ally, is having a birthday today.
Allys story is one of awesomeness in the face of fuckedupedness and that is what makes her a part of our family.
I feel like she has always been here, sprawled on our couch leaving long fire red hairs everywhere.
I think of her whenever I see Disney Princesses – she is Ariel to Moo’s Sleeping Beauty – and especially Alice in Wonderland.
Love you like you are one of our own.
Now I must go and bake you a motherfucking cake.
