This is my sister.
She and I are pretty close.
She once made me these wall art squares covered in our inside jokes and funny stories. They hung in my room during college. I still have them and they make me smile. Some of them are pretty ridiculous.
Like the time when I was driving us to school, glanced over at a house, and shouted, “OH MY GOSH! THERE IS A DEAD DEER IN THEIR YARD!” Becca replied with, “Molly…it’s a plastic deer that’s been knocked over/dead since we moved here.” We had moved into that house about 3 years prior at the time.
Or the time when my cousin Katie and her husband came to visit us when we lived in Minnesota. We went out to dinner and I had the best pork chop I’d ever had in my life. I of course asked for a doggy bag and was planning on bringing it home to savor the 2nd chop the next day. In all seriousness it did fill the entire car with a very savory aroma. Everyone got so sick of it on the drive home, Katie jokingly dangled the container out the window…and then it happened. My sister shook her arm so she dropped it. All over the middle of the road. I think I laughed and cried at the same time. To this day I’m still asked about my pork chop, if I’ve had another one as good (no), and have been known to receive photos of family members eating pork chops for my birthday.
Or even when my sister and I were being particularly rowdy in the car and just plain driving my parents nuts. After telling us to “knock it off”, “be quiet”, and “cut it out” about 1,487 times my mom finally shouted, “CHILDREN OF THE CORN!” Now my sister and I had no clue what she was talking about nor had we seen the movie. Instead of yelling “Hush!”, my sister yelled “Husk!” and I thought my dad was going to swerve off the road from laughter. Leave it to my sister to blurt out a corny joke.
No pun intended. Okay maybe I did.
She has a 6th sense.
She can detect a seven layer bar within a half mile radius. She inherited my mother’s love for coconut.
So this one is for you Becca!
And now you’ve met my family!
