Welcome to Oz

I walk up to the door of my favorite coffeehouse and the door opens. I see a young woman, no older than three, on the other side of it.
“Thank you,” I say.
She nods. This is a beautiful young girl with curly brown hair and sun dress. My father would have been fawning.
After putting in my order, I turn and see the girl from a better vantage point. As I look at her I simultaneously realize two things: 1. I know who this girl is (because I know who her parents are) and 2. she’s wearing a costume. She is the daughter of J. Smith Cameron and Kenneth Lonergan. And she’s dressed as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, ruby slippers and all. Charming.
