I'm going to visit some of my family on Saturday for a week. An assortment of sisters will be there.
Let me tell you a few things about one of my sisters.
She's the type of person people mean when they say happy-go-lucky, someone always ready with a funny story or poised to laugh at one of yours.
Things are generally pretty black and white with her - you're either with her or you're with the terrorists. Never one for putting on airs (and having no heirs), she's at her most comfortable living, laughing and lounging around in loose fitting attire.
A few years ago, a local beer company had a promotion where if you bought a case of beer, you got a free t-shirt. As sis was home and on vacation, she took this as a chance to expand her limited wardrobe options. In a very short span, she managed to go home with 6 new t-shirts.
Every one was earned proudly and honestly. Now, normally you wouldn't catch her tossing back beer like it was going out of style or smoking a pack a day either but when you're on vacation, well, what are you gonna do?
Although I'm not a religious man, I've been praying she's already set for clothes this year.
And speaking of praying, have I mentioned that she's a nun?
Talk about the Passion.
