Love at First Sight

For Kira:

When I saw this 88-year-old yoga teacher, it was love at first sight because, DAMN she looks good for her age. And because she rhymes in her class. And because she is teaching these brave grandpas and grandmas to stay healthy and even to give to charity. Inez Russo holds her head high and gently whips this retirement home into shape. My favorite thing about her though, the moment when I knew for SURE this was love I was feeling, was when I saw the way she scoffs at that silly question of money. Next time I'm in Buffalo, I'm going to Inez's class to bask in the spunkiness.
