I love my sister. She's beautiful, crazy smart, sweet and caring and intuitive. Right now, she's working to get her LPN. Today was a bit rough, so she called me just to chat. About half an hour into the conversation, she grew rather quiet. Solemn, even. Her words, when she spoke, were laced with gravitas. "I also wanted to talk to you about something... personal." Naturally, I encouraged her to go right ahead. "I'm trying to be... I don't know... more of a normal person."


"I just don't know what you'll think, so..."

I waited for her to say more. The silence stretched on. I couldn't imagine what it was that might be so difficult for her to tell me. "K.," I said at last, my voice gone a bit squeaky, "are you trying to tell me that you've accepted Jesus Christ as your personal saviour?"

"NO!" she blurted. "I'm just thinking of getting a bikini wax!"

... and there was no more coherent conversation for the remaining phone call, because we were snorting with laughter and talking about thoroughly blasphemous contours for bikini waxes.

thank you so much for sharing this. I laughed until I cried. Your story reminds me of my Mom and Aunt Linda.


When you two are sixty, just send me your stories!

Awesome icon :) When you have a moment. Can you tell me the names of the productions your pretty little Missus is in? There was one she was recommending and I wanted to see it.

That is so her. I have had some of the same moments with her.
