2000: The Year of Me Wearing the Same Shirt in Every Picture

This is not a joke. In 2000, I apparently wore the exact same Becel Ride for Heart shirt in every photo of me that was taken – the same one.

Granted, I did grow a lot from my first year, and along with growing a fairly-sized afro, I think that the lemonade stand in my second year was all about reprising my fantastic memories from the first one. Again, I took my seat behind the very same stand, and poured the same cups of lemonade. To different people, but the message remained poignant and constant: “you’re never too little to make a big difference in the world.”

I can also infer that the 2000 Ride for Heart was a great experience for me, again getting to ride on the back of my dad’s bike – I admit, I had it pretty great back then: no peddling required!
