  • We were stuck in a car on a four hour drive to Baton Rouge. My sisters were 7 and 15. To replace the boredom, we made faces and took funny pictures. Then, my creative sister--the 15 year old--started making hearts and stars with her hands, and I would take the pictures. "Hey!", she said, "Let's make a peace sign!!" Too much was needed to create this shape. She couldn't do it alone.

    Funny how that works, huh?
