LOS ANGELES, CA-
(Bina is what my nephew Shane calls me. It’s his interpretation of B.A., which is what my sister calls me, which is a shortening of Betty Ann, which is what my parents call me because Ann is my middle name and Betty is a nickname for Elizabeth.)
Having recently met my niece, whose five-day-old foot is pictured above, I explained to her that no one truly arrives on the planet until he or she is featured in a TNB story.
She stared at me blankly, and my sister, who knows a lot more about these things than I do, said, “All she really cares about right now is eating.”
