And they finally got to the issue that has my picture in it.
I still remember having that picture taken.
I was at summer camp -- The James & Rachel Levinson Day Camp of the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh (try putting that on a T-shirt) and I was madly in love with the Israeli exchange student counselors. I always had short hair, and my mother always had short hair, but Zehava and Yael both had long hair, and my favorite thing was when they would let me braid their hair.
So we were out by the pool and some photographer (dude?) just sort of pointed out me and Nikki and Jennie and told us to go sit over there by Zehava and Yael. I don't think Jennie (who I don't really remember) or Nikki (who I do) or I had any clue what was going on, because none of us are looking at the camera. But I do remember Zehava trying to get me to look at the photographer, but no -- I was way too geeked to have the chance to play with her hair -- so she gave up and the photographer snapped the picture and there it is.
Now. On the internet. Forever. Which is fanfuckingtastic, because I've always really loved that picture.
