I've always thought of these two lovely ladies as my neices, but they are in fact my wife's cousin's daughters, making us 2nd cousins once-removed. And we were once removed, although not from this bar this night.
Born and raised in NYC, I have known them since they were 4 and 5 years old and have had the delight of watching them grow into fine young ladies. Oh, the New Years parties we had at their mother's house.
S, the one with the finger, is leaving the city soon to persue a life-long dream of visiting Alaska. There she will be returning to school, and while I am incredibly proud of her and happy for her, I am also terribly sad to see her go.
