I don’t know if all little girls loved posing for pictures as much as my sisters and I did, but we sure knew how to work it for the camera. I remember my paternal grandmother had one of those large video cameras - the kind you had to hoist on your shoulder - it was the 80s - and I just ran in front of it whenever she was recording. My favorite thing to do was be a model, and this meant holding my arms out to my sides and waving them almost like I was a bird. I have no idea why I thought that was something models would do.
