I can't say "little sister", as she has been taller than me since she was a preteen.
I can't say "younger sister", because that indicates that I am older. and I am by 7 years
So, even though she is over 30, she is still my baby sister.
Last week, I received a text message from her that went like this...
"Hey. Terry and I got married at lunch."
Now, blog friends, I ask you, is this acceptable?!?
I responded, "Oh really."
Frankly, it was all I could think of to say!
She and Terry have been dating and cohabitating for years, now, but still.
Moments later I received a text from my Mother that went like this...
"DID YOU JUST GET A TEXT FROM JENNIFER?"
Classic Jennifer. Insert flashabck to when she slipped my Mother a note in her purse to announce that she was pregnant with my niece 13 years ago.
A little later, in our texting, Mother mentioned that she had investigated a bit and inquired as to if there was a reason for the sudden marriage, and there wasn't.
They had just "been thinking about it for a while and decided to do it".
Well, had I known, I could have at least shown up on my lunch break with a Happy Meal or something for the bride and groom.
Nevertheless, they are married just the same.
|My Aunt Made them a cake after the fact. It was delicious.|
So that is how it went down, in C-town. Baby sister went off to the court house and got married and we all received a text message.My Dad doesn't own a cell phone. Wonder if he knows yet?????
