Sixteen years ago today, my friend Melanie’s daughter Radha was born.
Let me back up.
This is a photograph (taken by my mom) of me on Christmas of 1994. I was sixteen years old.
Twelve days later, on my half-birthday, Radha was born.
Today is Radha’s sixteenth birthday, which means that in exactly six months she will be exactly the age I was when she was born.
None of this matters to anyone but me, of course, but it is hard to believe.
