A good phone call
One of my sisters called me at work this morning to say she's gotten engaged. She's still on vacation in Florida with her
boyfriend fiance. He's a good guy. I was surprised to realize they'd been dating for some six years. This is the good sister, the one who still lives at home instead of living in sin with her boyfriend fiance.
Our mother, who was quite upset that one of her 30-year-old unmarried daughters was going away with her longtime boyfriend for a week, is now quite happy that she will come back home with a more respectable status.
As for me, I'm hoping the wedding is in a year so I have time to shed some weight. I don't want to be singled out as the fat older sister.
