girl talk....

I have written about my sister before, the ever popular "auntie-biotic."  some of my favorite moments with her are our phone conversations.  there is never a dull moment, that's for sure.  here is a brief excerpt from a recent phone call between myself and auntie biotic.

Me: hey miss, whatcha doin'?

M: nothin'...just restin.'  i've been working a lot lately.  they been makin' me work every day...except for tuesday, wednesday and saturday. {she's a courtesy clerk at kroger}

Me: wow.  you must be really tired.  anyway, i just wanted to let you know that mom fell and broke her wrist this morning.  i know you've probably tried to call her and that's why she's not answering.  dad had to take her to the emergency room.

M: yeah, right.  

Me: no, really.  i'm serious.  they are at the ER right now and she's getting a cast.  she's fine, but they can't use their cell phones, so i was calling to let you know that mom or dad will call you when they leave.

M: why do you always do this to me?  you know how it makes me worried when you call and make up stories about people being hurt.  i hate when you do that.

{click....  she hangs up}

For the record, I have NEVER called my sister and made up stories about anyone being hurt.  ONE time, and one time only, when she was mad at the family (which is not all that uncommon) she wouldn't speak to anyone (again, not uncommon) so I called and left her a voicemail.  In that voicemail, I may or may not have stated that she needed to call me back ASAP, because Libbi was asking for her Auntie Biotic and that she had learned how to spell her name all by herself and was practicing writing it in cursive.  Somehow, this got turned into me "always" making up stories about family members being injured.....go figure.

She even went as far as to call our brother and leave him a message asking him to call her back as soon as possible because I was making up stories again and she needed to know if mom was really hurt.  Because, if our brother says it's true, it's true.  No questions asked.  He's obviously not a liar like I am.

Come to think of it, she never did apologize for accusing me of making up stories.....I guess that's because she thinks I owe her the apology since, you know, I do that all the time. :)
