So I don’t know what to think. For the longest time, I always thought it went like this…
My sister…4 years younger
Next sister…6 years younger
Next sister…8 years younger
Brother…10 years younger
Baby sister…11 years younger
Come to find out today…the SECOND sister and the THIRD sister are 7 years and 9 years younger than me?!?!?! WHAT?!?!
So for going on 33 years now, I’m the REALLY OLDER brother?!?!
That’s a WHOLE YEAR that I’ve lost somewhere??? When did this happen? What year did I lose? What is going on when I have somehow misplaced time and now my siblings are a year younger than I think they are??? Could this be a ploy? Or is it a sign of senility? Is it possible…and I’m thinking this might be more likely…that my sister is just trying to confuse me? Trying to make me FEEL older? Because I have gone along all this time, imagining that she and my other sister are a year older than they are…
Or…is it just MY SISTER who is getting older and she has forgotten what her TRUE age is? Maybe she doesn’t want to get older? Maybe she is using my male mentality (guys don’t remember birthdays) to use against me and is trying to stay young forever?!?!?
Hmmmm…wonder what evil forces are really at work here….I dunno. Gonna have to do more research into this (birth certificates, visits with relatives, the works…) and I’ll get back to you. Curiouser and curiouser said the cat…
P.S. Still in the doghouse for yesterday. *sigh* (dammit)
