okay so this is how i got her back


okay this is how i got her back

if you are a follower of my blog, you may remember my story for the letter “w”---

after that blog, i had many comments wanting to know how i got my sister back, from the washing machine incident----now i will tell you a couple of the ways--

first i must confess, there was some tension already in place, as i- believe it or not-was not the perfect little sister, all of the time---

one little offense has stayed with my mean old sister for years—why, she brings it up every time we are together, if there is birthday cake--

you see as a child, everyone always had the lovely birthday cakes with the beautiful icing roses---well everybody knows, you just go ahead and eat them---but not my fastidious sister, no she saved hers----

once when she wasn't home, those delicious roses called to me from her room inside the little jewelry box, inside the tiny cardboard box, where she thought she hid them so cleverly----well this is pretty predictable---they were not even that good tasting any longer---as a matter of fact, i had to choke them down-----

as i recall, she pretty much choked me that evening----

back to the wmi, as it will be referred to from now on, because i am lazy----

well i thought and thought, for what seemed like months, as to what hideous thing i might repay my dear sister with---i had it, but could i pull it off----oh boy did i-

there she was, all prettied up waiting for her handsome date---i think it may have been their first date—that is what i choose to remember------well she steps out of the front door—giggling as he held the door for her--- blushing slightly as he helped her with her all too preppy" tally ho" sweater--

and there i was, she looked across the porch at me, with a look, like---yes i am lovely am i not and don't you just wish you were me--

that look was all it took—any reluctance on my part, to do the horrid deed i was about to do, left me in that instant--

i pulled up the garden hose and blasted her until she dripped, just like i had that fateful day in my adorable candy striper uniform-----dripped she did, in front of her stunned boyfriend-----

i don't really have a clear memory of what happened next---i may have blacked out—-as i remember it, she did end up going on her precious date-----but i had won—--and no matter what awful, life-threatening thing she could do to me, --nothing could  dampen my warrior's win!

  2. I knew you were my kind of person. Sadly,I have no siblings, so when I did something like this it was usually between my mother and me. Talk about paying a price.

  4. LOL - and there I was thinking you were such a gentle, kind soul!!! I had to go back to see the wmi because I missed it. ROFL - I had a brother and we did pretty much the same naughty things to each other, but we wouldn't be without each other either!!

  5. Oh, that was funny, Lynn. My cousin threw ice water on me when I was in the bath. Talk about shocking. I didn't run and chase her, like I should have, and never repaid her. You at least had some satisfaction.

    BTW - I met Diane Gabaldon at the last SIWC conference here in Vancouver and she was a gracious lady who took the time to read my synopsis and suggest some excellent changes. I had booked a crit appointment with her. I also met her son, a fantasy writer, but my appointment was with Diane. I was very impressed, and I love the way she writes. She's extremely nice.

    Hope you'll enter a Reflections post, Lynn.

  6. LOL; what a great way to get her back, almost an eye for an eye, a wet candy stripper's uniform for a wet date night attire :)

    too cute too about the roses she saved from the birthday cakes; I too would have thought after a period of time they would almost taste a bit rancid :)

    the things we do with our siblings and then we are best of buddies now :) (hoping that is the case with you and your sister :)

    betty
