Treat Your Tummy...And NIE

One of my favorite memories of my little brother, Timmy (he's 29 and we still call him Timmy, like it or not!), is when my family lived in Villa Park, CA and frozen yogurt shops first came out. My parents would take all seven of us down and each of us would order our size, flavor and toppings for ourselves. Oh the power!

And apparently the responsibility.

Timmy would always be the last to order. He would stand up at the counter, lean forward and breathe deeply. He'd put his hand on his forhead, thumb on one side, fingers on the other, and RUB, like he was trying hard to remember an easy vocab word while taking his SAT's.

He would slowly get out the words, "I would like..." and pause and keep rubbing his forhead. He'd swallow hard and finally come up with, "A Small Vanilla with Rainbow Sprinkles." And he'd be done for the visit.

And we'd all laugh, because with all that pressure felt and time spent, he'd order the same exact thing EVERY time!

And we tease him about it whenever we go out to eat and it's his turn to order. Poor TIMMY!

Now to TODAY!

(Hope you don't get stuck behind TIMMY!)
