Emma's Special Friend - sweet!

I WENT TO St. James School today to be the Special Person of the one, the only, the legendary Emma Backoff.

Wait a second ... are you EMMA BACKOFF? Really?

The one, the only, the awesome EMMA BACKOFF!
Emma is in sixth grade and she rocks. Her big sister takes guitar lessons at Second String Music and her mother, Kiki, spoils Fast Eddie rotten with catnip and treats.

Emma's teacher is Mrs. Schaffer, who loves what she does and is very good at it. St. James has small class sizes and friendly teachers and staff.

Emma interviewed me for a class project. She asked what things were like for me in sixth grade. Sixth grade? I can't remember what I had for breakfast this morning. Once we got the whole running water and electricity thing figured out, I think life was pretty good for us back then.

Emma is a sunny girl who is always smiling. She asked me what advice I would give her, and I said, "Don't blink." The smile turned into a look of confusion. "It goes by fast," I said.

Ohhhhh. The smile returned and I laughed out loud.

I had a great time and it was my honor to be Emma's guest for the day.
