My 6-Year-Old Idol!
When I was 6, I "simply adored" Eloise! Eloise was also 6, (in the Eloise books) but she never spoke like one. I was living in an apartment in Staten Island and my fictional hero lived in NYC's Plaza Hotel. She was spunky and gutsy and a little untidy and I loved her. I had to wait about 40 years till I finally stepped inside The Plaza, where I could imagine her nutty antics. That short visit only allowed for a brief photo op with her portrait.
My Stay at The Plaza
Celebrating With Eloise!
I knew I needed to perform one of Eloise's many stunts, for one of my 60-Celebrations! I guess I kind of wimped out by doing a headstand. Eloise did much crazier things at The Plaza.
I was glad to find out I could still do a headstand. However, I refused to cross my arms. I can be a little stubborn, just like Eloise!
