My sisters are my favorite people on earth. ~ Ryan Phillippe
I had two sisters, and we would love to get dressed up and pretend that we were chic, sophisticated ladies. And I think that was a great sort of preparation, in a way. ~ Suzanne Farrell
Today is my darling younger sister's birthday. Actually it's her pseudo-birthday. My dad was the one who turned in her birth certificate (he's horrendous with dates!) and he filled in May 4. However, we discovered his diary of that year (which he keeps religiously) and he noted, "Baby Girl born today, May 3".
It's always been a running joke in my family that all her documentation says May 4 but we all have a party on May 3 anyway. She loves playing pranks on her friends when they call her with well wishes, saying that, "Oh, my birthday was yesterday, or Oh, it's tomorrow!" So I guess her birthday is only half a day on both sides...like May 3.5? Ok genius, there's a formula for you.
Anyway, a big Happy Pseudo Birthday to my darling sister the Engineer. (This is the sis that can actually pass as me on a good day. She looks like me, sounds like me only difference is that she's wittier and definitely more analytical). Hope it was a great one. I figured it must be, since you didn't pick up your phone all day. The world would be a much more different place without you in it, that's for sure.
My...you are actually 22! Dayum, I feel old!
