Happy Monday! Today is a special day: my sister Rachel’s birthday!
We celebrated over the weekend by dancing on a trolley, frolicking in the city, eating jello shots, and hugging each other a lot.
I also got her the best present (besides allowing her to be my sister): two little frogs! They are adorable, and she named them Becca and Steve, which I think is just perfect.
In her honor, I thought I’d comb through previous wake up calls and find the best-of Sister.

Friend: Have you ever had sex–
Friend: No, I didn’t finish…
Sister: Yeah, me neither. *Smirks*
Me to my sister: Who’s your favorite?
Sister: Between the two of you? (Looking pointedly at friend and me.)
“This isn’t a fork anymore. It’s a microphone.”
“My sister is beautiful inside and out.”
“I was just parting my hair and a piece was on the wrong side, and this was my exact thought: You belong over there [other side of the part] my little butterfly.”
“When boys have to pee and poo, do they stand to pee, and then sit down? Or, do they sit the whole time? When [man friend] went to the bathroom this morning, I thought of that.”
“And then I thought to myself, ‘Oh no! I puked on the toilet paper roll! [Roommate] is going to kill me.”
Sister: You know, it just seems like a lot of holes to jump through.
Mom: You mean hoops?
Sister: Yeah, whatever. English is hard.
“The human body is amazing. The skin over my cut is growing back already!”
“When I speak in a certain direction, my voice echoes. It’s like hearing me twice. Which is a gift to all… *quietly* all.”

Happy birthday, Sistah! Thank you for always making me giggle. I’m so glad you were born. (Shout out to my parents for making that happen.)
