Today is my sister Charity’s 20th birthday. TWENTY. I’m not sure which is more unbelieveable–the fact that she’s two decades old, or the fact that I can clearly remember things that happened two decades ago. She fulfilled my life’s greatest wish–to have a sister–and she’s been fulfilling that wish since. There is no one on earth like her, and for that I am sorry for the rest of you. She is beautiful and smart and funny as hell, and I raise my glass to her today.
Charity, c. 1987
