I have a cousin somewhere, maybe, who I idolized as a little girl. I only remember she was beautiful, she wore light pink legwarmers, and she wore her hair in a side ponytail.
It must have been the 1980’s. I spent most of my very little time with her at Nana’s, and really thought she was the bee’s knees.
Her name was Cathy, but it may have been Kathy, and I know she was Nana’s niece, but I don’t remember the rest. She was a couple years older than I.
She lived in California and didn’t get to visit us in Massachusetts much, but when she left, I wanted leg warmers, and I wore my hair in a side ponytail for more than a year.
It would be cool to be in contact with her just to say hello, but it’s been about four decades so I don’t think it’ll happen, but I think about her sometimes, and wonder where she is, and how her life has been.
