Aunts are very special people.
They treated me like a small person as opposed to a silly child who needed direction. I was able to drink out of good glasses and eat exotic foods like falafel and hummus. They also burned incense and asked me my opinion. As a little girl I thought they were so glamorous. They wore flowing clothes, had arms full of bangles, and always seemed find something to laugh about. I wanted to be just like them.
