The Weekend Starts Early With: Morgan

I got an easy couple of days ahead of me. Maybe one photo shoot, maybe a trip to the Salton Sea (though I'm on the fence bout that one, as it's proof that god exists, and he's abandoned us), a trip to the accountant, and a celebratory meal at Roscoe's with my sister, who yesterday found out she's been accepted to UCLA.

 

And here's the tenuous connection to Morgan.

 

Morgan's got herself a sister, as well.

 

That's it.

 

My sister's a good thirteen years younger than me, so I've gotten a good view of her as she's grown up from a preternaturally smart little girl to a thoroughly successful teenager .

 

And worried all the way.

 

When she texted me yesterday with the news, I could feel a bit of weight lift off, she'd made it, despite going to one of the worst high schools in the city, despite going through more shit before college than I'd gone through my entire life.

 

So whatever you do this weekend, do me a favor and raise a glass to my sister, someone who pulled it off, and now gets to be whatever she wants, even secretary of state!

 

Hell, she's black, so maybe she can be president, one day.

 

What y'all up to this weekend?

  

More Morgan (because, frankly, I'm all out of pictures of my sister ((and will be remedying that tomorrow, yes)) and because, hell, Morgan is fucking gorgeous) over on the blog: blog.louobedlam.com/post/88177421/this-is-the-kind-of-sho...
