On Facebook there's a photo of me and Papa in front of his birthday cake. He's wearing a brown blazer, I'm wearing something red. I can remember snippets of that afternoon but I'm not sure now how accurate the pictures in my head are. I remember him saying I could sit on his lap while we blow the candle. I remember feeling so special. I get to blow the candle with the birthday boy! I remember Mama holding the camera. I remember...smiling smugly, as if I'd just won something. Maybe my memory's rusty? I just remember feeling really happy.
