A Thank You Letter to My Sister On Her Birthday

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Dear Sis,

Thank you for being born 4th and not 2nd because someone like me had to be the older sister and clearly with my bossy nature I’m better equipped to handle that responsibility.  Thank you for always being so agreeable whenever I made you eat something, wear something, or say something you didn’t understand just to get a laugh.

Thank you for being 3 inches to the left when I launched that baseball across the yard to our middle brother because if you had not been 3 inches to the left I would have creamed you in the head with that baseball and you might not be as smart or musically talented as you are today.

mickey and davyThank you for making that mix tape we used to listen to as kids when we shared a room and accepting Mickey Dolenz as your boyfriend just so I could have Davy Jones as my boyfriend while we watched Monkees reruns on Nickelodeon after school.

Thank you for tolerating the fact that I have recently started introducing you as my older sister to strangers just to see the look of confusion that crosses people’s faces.

How was your weekend?  Ours was just swell. I’ve got a big story I can’t wait to tell! We worked through the weekend on our latest plan, with Skil Saw and Dremel and nail gun in hand. Tomorrow I’ll show all our hard work to you, together we built ourselves something brand new.

Till then, wishing you all a . . .
