BEST. DAY. EVER.

by Chris Garcia-Halenar


The purple tulle feels like home.

Puff.

Fluff.

Twirl.

She smiles back at the girl in the mirror.

“It’s me.”


Best. Day. Ever.


“Please Mama?”

Dab.

Brush.

Smack.

“How do I look?”

“Perfect.”


Best. Day. Ever.


“Are you ready, ladies?”

Inhale.

Smile.

Step.

Daddy’s eyes hug me.

“My beautiful girl.”


Best. Day. Ever.


“Girls on this side, boys over there!”

Her heart beats courage as she steps into the company of ruffles and ribbons.

“Why aren’t you in the other line?”

Stand.

Hold.

Breathe.

“This is MY line.”


Best. Day. Ever.


“This year’s Easter Egg Race winner - Casey McDermott!”

“Way to go, Casey!”

“You rock!”

“We love you girl!”

Cheer.

Support.

Believe.


Best. Day. Ever.


“Did you all have a nice time?” the neighbor asks.

“Oh yes,” Mama responds.

“Where’s Kevin?”

“Right here, Mrs. Johnson.

I’m Casey.”

Exhale.


Best. Day. Ever.
