Look What You Made Me Do Celeste!!!!

I haven't told a story about me when I was a little girl in a while and this one is one of my favorites. It truly illustrates what a bossy, freckle-faced, little munchkin I was.

My cousin Celeste is one of my best friends and has been since the day she was born. We actually were born on the same day but one year apart. Being the older cousin, I could be kind of bossy. Lucky for me, Celeste listened to everything I said. If I wanted to play jobs that is what we did. If I wanted to play with the prettier doll, I got to. If I wanted her snack and mine, she would give it to me. It was a beautiful relationship since day one...Celeste did everything I wanted. I was one happy camper.
Celeste and I both loved to do things that made us money. I have already talked about our Can Club, but we also had lemonade stands and bake sales that went door to door. We were excellent entrepreneurs. We brought the sweets to you!

One day, when Celeste was spending the weekend with me and Toni, we decided to make chocolate chip cookies to sell to all of my neighbors. I had just gotten a new bike (a bright pink-huffy with a radio) for my birthday, and Celeste had been helping me learn to ride without my training wheels. (Celeste has always been the most athletic...hence her learning to ride without training wheels first.) Since I felt pretty confident that I could ride my bike door to door to sell the cookies, that is what we decided to do. I was going to ride my bike while Celeste walked. (haha what can I say...I was a bit bratty.) The second I climbed onto my huffy with all of the cookies in hand I fell over. All of the cookies broke into tiny pieces. Celeste was still standing on the grass at least 6 feet away. "LOOK AT WHAT YOU MADE ME DO CELESTE!!!" I screamed at her. She looked at me with her big, blue eyes and said "I'm So Sorry Olivia." For the rest of the day I made sure to let her know that it was her fault that all of the cookies were broken and that I had fallen.

How Celeste continued to play with me when we were little I still do not know. However, I do know that she is still one of my favorite people, and I like to think I treat her much better now. She was and still is my Best Friend! I love you Celestie! Thank you for always forgiving my bossy-self.
Still Best Friends!!!
