Funniest memory from childhood + $90 Starbucks Giveaway!

Gosh- my funniest memory from childhood. I'm going to include my sister in on this one, and with a few words before I start. This happened when I was 14/15? and my sister was 18/19? So not children children but not an adult yet.

Also my sister (this is the one that just got married) love her to death, but she can definitely have some ditzy moments in life.

Here we go- whatever year this was, I'm vague on the details, it took place on New Year's Day. I had been babysitting the previous night for a family and on the 1st my mother took my sister and I out to De Leon Springs in Florida to this amazing pancake place. (seriously one of the best places, if you are ever in Florida and have an extra day- you should go, it's a pancake place where you make your own pancakes on a skillet built into the table!)

Anyways, now I'm getting sidetracked. We were on our way back home and I was telling my family in the car that the child I had been watching the night before had asked me a very cute question. We had been watching The Heffalump Movie (Winnie The Pooh) when the little girl and she had asked me what a heffalump was. So I explained to her that a heffalump is an elephant, just as rabbit is a rabbit, pooh is bear, tigger is a tiger and Eeyore is a donkey. My sister pipes up from the front seat- Eeyore isn't a donkey. Wait what?


In all seriousness she goes Eeyore is not a donkey. Okay... well what do you think he is? She had some vague answer, my mother and I were laughing hysterically trying to explain to her that yes, in fact, Eeyore is a donkey!

Finally finally finally we convince her that Eeyore is donkey and then, and then she goes- So what are you going to tell me next, Piglet is a Pig?!

It may be one of the best conversations I've ever had with her. I had wanted to include this story in my maid of honor speech for her- but went a different route with a rap. So in honor of her getting married this past Sunday- Rach, this post is for you.
