Amber is in her 20's now and cute as the VW bug she drives. She was already cute as a button when I first met her, even though as a 6-year-old she was free to interrogate me in a way the adults didn't dare:
Amber (six years old): What's your favorite color?
Me (perched nervously on edge of sofa): Purple.
Amber: gasp That MY favorite color too!!!
What's your favorite animal?
Me: I like horses.
Amber: bigger gasp THAT'S MY FAVORITE ANIMAL, TOO!!! (Beaming)
Mom, guess what? (Runs to tell family the breaking news)
Me (leaning back): Oh yeah. I am totally in, now.
