Uma is a Movie Star?

The nanny I had growing up is a part of my family. We don't call her by name, we call her Ah-yee, which in Chinese, means that she's my mother's sister. We love her like someone who will love you unconditionally without expecting you to become a surgeon. Because my parents...their love is conditional.

Everyone loves Ah-yee, in fact, when my sister was looking for a summer job, Ah-yee found one for her at the best cancer institute in the country. How? Well, she just happened to know the lady who is director of the program. And of course, she loves Ah-yee because everyone loves Ah-yee.

Now, an unbelievably lucky little girl named Anna gets to have Ah-yee five days a week. She's the granddaughter of a world-reknown architect and attends a really posh school in Manhattan.

So the other day, Ah-yee told my sister that she went on a bowling playdate with Anna and Anna's friend, Maya. Ah-yee said that she didn't want to play, because she never bowled in her life, but then Maya's mom Uma said, "C'mon Kathy, just try it one time." So Ah-yee did and bowled a strike her very first time.

"Did you say Uma?" Jenny asked.


"Does she have blond hair?"


Jenny showed her a DVD of Gattaca and said, "Does she look like that?"

"Uma is a movie star?...Wait, Mr. Hawke is a movie star too?"
