Sister love

When our oldest brother just became a grandfather for the first time, my sister--four years older than I--complained that now she really felt like a middle child. Me, the little sister with her new tattoo, and David with new grandchild. So I suggested--merely suggested, I'd like to emphasize!--that she should just get a tattoo as well.

So today I drove to Chicago to take her out to Frontera Grill for lunch for her birthday today. I'll let you guess where we ended up:


She got a beautiful blue snowflake on her left should blade, in honor of her move from Dallas to a very wintry Park Ridge.

We are two bad-a** sisters. I'm telling you, we had the best time today! Yay Susan!

My sister and I just spent several days together in So. Florida...me flying in from No. Cal, my sister from Uruguay. (How lucky you are to have your sister just a car drive away!!) We always have a blast together. No tatoos, though. Some of my best essays have been written about my times with my sister. Photos here.

caraf...when it's healed up I'll show you a picture, if Susie Snowflake gives me the go-ahead. (Just kidding, Susan!)

And Pat, your sister looks a lot like you. I guess the same could be said of me and my sister.

I want to be the subject of your new book, "Mommy gets a Tattoo." I will tell all the kids that the pain was excruciating.

Oh, yeah, my phone is ringing off the hook with editors looking for that manuscript.

And you are a LIAR about the pain!
