Well, just one of the lies—I need to stretch them out so I can do other blog posts.
So I was an evil child, not wild and crazy , but sneaky manipulative evil.
When I was six and my little innocent sister was five we shared a room, and every night we had to clean our room before bed.
Well one night I got the bright idea to offer my sister cookies the next morning if she cleaned the whole room. My sister, being younger and trusting, was very excited about the idea and began to clean.
The next morning I was worried because I didn’t have any cookies, but a miracle happened. My sister had forgotten! My evil little brain began to whirl and smoke and I came up with a plan. For weeks every night I would promise my sister some elaborate dessert is only she would clean the room and each morning she would have forgotten.
It was brilliant!
I only did this for a few weeks, not only was there a tiny little kernel of guilt forming, but I was really scared of getting caught. I’m pretty sure it would have been a spanking offense.
My poor sister. She didn’t remember until I mentioned it as an adult, but I think the realization does explain some of the more noisy gifts she has bought my children over the years.
Did you have any fun sibling stories? Did you have a sibling like me?
