Things I’ve learned from my sister

She’s older and therefore wiser.  :0

She is also probably going to kill me for writing this blog.  I like to live dangerously.  I have a feeling this will be an on-going blog…with several continuations…if I live to continue.

1. Do not resume a high-fiber diet when still coughing and sneezing from a cold.

2. It’s nice when your car color matches your mailbox color … paint touchups for both may be done at the same time.

3. Do not hit your garage with your car (see #2) when your teenaged nephew and friend are watching.

4. Moles are active at 11:30 a.m.  Precisely.

5. Neighbors wonder what the crazy lady is doing in her yard with a pitchfork at 11:30 a.m.

6. She is the most witty and sarcastic person I know.

7. She makes me snort-laugh.

8. Refraining from commenting is a form of exercise.

9. Concrete poles should be avoided when bike-riding.

    she sounds like someone I wanna know. But not necessarily someone I wanna ride with 😉

    You, Ellen, Janet and I should hang out someday!!

    Readers, This reply is from Janet, the older, more mature sister. Surely you can’t believe Marla’s comments! After all, I’m an English teacher, and I have standards to uphold. (Granted, they’re low standards and quite non-existent after a few cold drinks. Wait – it’s Friday -how about Happy Hour today after work?! Ah!)

    Just wait until Marla opens her Christmas gifts this year!!

    Talk about snort-laugh. You had me at staying away from a high fiber diet when dealing with a cold. Visual image and all. And Janet? the older, wiser sister? I was a high school English teacher as well, so I totally get her – low standards and all. Aren’t sisters the best? I have 2 – and I’m “that” sister – ahhh yes, the middle one.

  5. :)…I’ll be back to see how this all pans out!
