I almost couldn’t believe what my uncle said when the painter was painting my room.

I’m 38 years old but I wanted a pink room. The painter was painting my room and as he was rolling the light pink paint up the walls in my room he said “I almost can’t believe Esha wants a pink room. Esha oh my God seriously a pink room.” My uncle visited me with his two children Gabriel and Amelia. I have been so proud of him ever since he started working for Spike Lee. It’s been years since I had seen my uncle and even his career as a film assistant for Spike Lee I hope he knows how proud of him I am. I know his children are really little.
