And on a completely unrelated note: I took Toni out for a few hours. Showed her the wonders of Ethiopian food, got her a new pair of shoes for school, and touched on conversation topics that I had never discussed with her before. She asked about love, sex, being “ready,” finding the “perfect man,” and finding herself. I suddenly realized we've been matched for a really long time and she's turning sixteen on Friday. Sixteen! I wish I could shield her heart; best I can do is hug her tight and hope her soul feels embraced as well.
