“This is my cousin and I at the races. We are the same age and were in the same class at school, so I always felt a little bit of rivalry with her. My older brother, my older sister and my younger brother all won the “Best Dressed” in their age/gender categories, but my cousin won in ours. I was so dirty on her for winning because not only did I have to put up with (what I saw as) her smugness, I also had to put up with my siblings teasing.
We are now in our 30’s, great mates, and think this photo is hilarious. Especially since my cousin admitted she was jealous of my hat and scrunchy socks (which were all the rage back then).”
