Girl's Rule, Boys Get Pushed Out of the Way

From Africa 2007

This girl in Asebe Teferi wanted nothing more than for me to take her picture. She came running up to me and smiled and asked for a photo. I pulled up my camera and went to snap the photo when this boy jumped up and tried to get in the photo. I don't know if he was her brother or cousin or just a friend, but they jostled for a moment and jokingly she pushed him away. They chased me after I took the photo and I showed it to them both and they laughed.

It was such a terrific moment. Their laughter was really nice to hear.
