CB Older Sis, CB Middle Sis, and Baby Sis
Can you pick the non-conformist? The Artist? The Nudist?
Morning at our house was always hectic, with three school-age girls vying for the bathroom mirror and railing against ear cleaning, parent-imposed hair grooming, and the ever popular mandatory nostril inspection. Having cleared all those hurdles one morning and hearing Big Sis start the VW bus, I sighed relief and believed them all on their way to whatever tumultuous experiences they could inflict on their teachers that day. My heart sank as the engine stopped, and one sister stomped up the stair from the garage, followed by a second set of stomps and then a third. Baby Sis appeared crying with the shocking news that..."Big Sis hit me for NO reason." The second stomper stood glowering at her and pontificated, "Inform your daughter that I am NOT a faggot!" Middle Sis was non-committal but seemed to concur that there were incorrect assertions. Knowing all this had not occurred in a vacuum, I addressed the bad choice of a word, which is a tad too archaic to have been picked up in the 'hood. I then reminded them to visit me at least once a month at the insane asylum, where they were sure to send me.
Can you pick out the responsible older sis? The middle sis?

Baby Sis, thin-skinned to insults, always seemed to be engaged in scuffles at school, especially with bullies. She championed shy children, whom she felt obligated to speak for and protect. One of the first children she brought home to spend the night was so shy her mother feared she might have to come and get her before night. She had a very notable speech impediment which other children found amusing, but not Baby Sis. When Big and Middle Sis laughed at her friend, Baby Sis was incensed and gave them a heated lecture about the golden rule. Needless to say, the little overnight guest never wanted to leave. The mother was shocked when she cried at having to go home!!
Can you pick the difficult to manage horse?
For all her conflicts with siblings, Baby Sis was popular with friends as well as a bad influence it seems. Her efforts to build a strong band of sisters almost resulted in getting the Japanese exchange student deported, no small feat. While on a shoplifting venture, which I neither instructed or inspired, Baby Sis and her unskilled pilferers were apprehended and that created my first opportunity to stand proudly and receive an ear-blasting from a local judge. Oh, the places you will go.
Baby Sis in High School
We learn from our experiences and are better for them. Baby Sis has never done hard time and can still vote! She is beautiful, funny, talented, and a real sweetheart. She still has a soft spot for downtrodden people and animals and we would not change a thing about her.
