I have two sisters, both younger than me. I'm very glad that I didn't drown them in the bathtub when they were little. They were pretty pesky and usually ganged up on me (I'll tell you about that some day), but they've grown up to be my best friends.
Well, Chris doesn't actually hate me; she just hates the Wicked English Teacher. When I wrote the first Wicked English Teacher post, she left this comment: AAAAARRRGG! I HATE this! You knew I would! The only thing I hate worse than bad spelleeng , grammmmer and the like iz people pointing it out in otherz!AAAARgggg! Where's my chocolate!?
The wonderful older sister saw all of Chris's potential being tossed aside, so she did what any loving sister would do. She undertook to educate Chris in spite of herself. Yes, my friends, this kind, loving, thoughtful older sister took time out of her busy busy college cramming schedule to take a red ink pen to Chris's letters and return them to her corrected. Of course, she also read and responded to Chris's letters with loving letters of her own. The older sister was perfectly reasonable.
|See how well she turned out with her big sister's guidance?|
So how do you and your siblings get along? Which ones would you like to kill? Which ones are you glad you didn't leave locked in the basement?
