Epiphanic.

My youngest sister is about to go to a mall type shopping center with her friends. She is more girl than I ever was. She wears makeup, cares about her hair, and will probably end up getting married when she gets older. In other words, she will be normal.

I don't know what compelled me to ask her the following question:

"So are you and your friends going to stop into the Borders? Look at some books?"

Silence.

"I'm kidding. I know that's not the cool thing kids do. Only dipshits like your older sister did things like that as a teenager."

It's true. I never had any friends when I was her age. I had books. Books were my companions. Funny how some things don't ever seem to change.

What the hell is wrong with me? I have no business trying to tell my sister (in code no less) that I think she doesn't read enough. So what? I read plenty and look at what it's gotten me. I'm 31, alone, living with my mother due to unemployment, and replete with my loserdom.

I'm a terrible sister.

I'm going to lock myself up in the room, drink the rest of my beer, and watch some Twilight Zone episodes.

Terrible.

You're not a loser. I spent most of my times with books when I was younger. :)

Yeah, but you grew out of it. What's my excuse.

I've just added things to the books. Things like beer and wine.

And well, now you have C. over books. Nice trade up if you ask me!

It has its moments. I haven't grown out of it, necessarily, but I have added booze to the equation as well.

Ha! I just noticed you have a link to my blog on your blog. I don't really like making people get permission to read it, hopefully I can change it after I get a real job.

Oh yeah! I forgot that I'm all privileged and shit. I thought it might be nice to share your wit with the world. I will remove it.

Also . . . why can't individual blogs be kept hidden? Yeah Blogger People? Huh, huh????

I would actually prefer to share my wit with the world (ha), but I feel like there's some stuff in there the WA Bar Association shouldn't be able to find. Y'know? I guess I could always say it's only loosely based on reality (kind of true).
