This picture is of Joey after we heard that the Wiener Mobile was in town.
Strangely enough, though, today's story isn't about her. Mainly because she was not the one who was excited to tears by the whole experience.
(Here's the conversation between me and Jenny and Aurora, as best as I can remember.)
Aurora: Today is the Best Day Ever! I went to the grocery store and I saw the WIENER MOBILE! I didn't want to run right up to it and seem too excited, so I decided to go shopping first. But then I started to freak out that by the time I was done they might be gone. The whole time I was inside the store I kept saying to myself, "Be cool, be cool."
Wendy: You were crying weren't you?
Aurora: I was trying not to.
Aurora: So I finished shopping and asked the wiener mobile people if I could have a picture. The lady didn't understand and thought I wanted to take it of just the wiener mobile. So I had to explain that No, I wanted a picture of me standing next to the wiener mobile.
Aurora: Then I asked for an Oscar Mayer Wiener Whistle.
Jenny: I didn't know there was a such a thing.
Aurora: Of course there's a wiener whistle. But she said I needed to sing the song to get it. But I was so excited...
Jenny: and crying by this time, right?
Aurora: Oh yah, totally. So I was so excited (and crying) that I couldn't remember the words, so they had to whisper them to me every other line. But I got my whistle!
Wendy: Probably because they thought you were a special needs person. After you left, I'm sure they even remarked on how high-functioning you were.
Aurora: Yah, something like... Oh good for her. She almost remembered all the words to the Oscar Mayer wiener song.
Love you, Rora. Your enthusiasm for life really does make you special.
