Sister's Day


Margie: Edna, look what we missed. It says in the newspaper that the first Sunday in August is Sister's Day. They made a holiday for us. My goodness. How sweet.

I just think we can celebrate any day we want to, don't you? We're not getting any younger.

Edna: Very true, sister. At our age, every day we're still alive and coherent is a holiday.

I like the idea of Sister's Day, it's a nice chance to reflect on one's relationship with one's sister. Maybe have a glass of special tea and work on burying the hatchet. What do you say?

Margie: Oh Edna, I'm all for that but where is that hatchet going to be buried?

Edna: It's a figure of speech, you ninny! My lands, here I am trying to reflect on the beauty that is our sisterly relationship and you go and say something like that.

Just be quiet and drink your special tea.

Margie: Beauty? I'll just keep my sisterly thoughts to myself. I need a straw.

"First Sunday in August

Sister's Day celebrates being or having a sister. That means a lot of us will celebrate this special day.

Sisters are truly special and unique. Sure, we may argue and fight. But, when it comes right down to it, sisters are the best, the very best.

Celebrate Sister's Day by spending time with your sister. Make it a special day in some way for you, and for her."

While I am very happy and content with my life ... I wish I HAD a sister!!

I love my girlfriends, but a sister would be nice.

I missed it, but I celebrate often with my two sisters...we love each other very much...I am going to see them next week. I can't wait!

Margie and Edna said...

Margie: Thank you all for visiting the basement. I'm happy some of you have good sisters. It must be very nice.
hilary, do you really want a sister? I have one for you. There is a no return policy though!
