Yesterday I found Middle Sister's diary and began the arduous task of trying to decipher its contents. Her penmanship leaves something to be desired, plus the diary itself is falling to pieces.
Here is one entry that caught my eye:
January 1, 1976
Today is New Year's Day. Last night I spent the night at Nanny's. I had a nice time. Chesapeake Bay Child, Little Sis and I played New Year's Eve party. We had fun. That was until we had to go to bed!
This morning when I woke up, someone was at the end of my bed, tickling my feet. It was Chesapeake Bay Child, of course. Today was fair. Sorry it's sloppy.
Now, I just have to ask this question: If Chesapeake Bay Child was such a mean and ornery sister, as has been portrayed previously, how come it is clearly documented that I would do something so playful and affectionate as tickling feet? I think that is a very considerate way to introduce someone to her day. I could have sat on her and tickled mercilessly, or I could have stuck a crayon in her ear, but I didn't.
I think this proves I was a good sister. This also proves that even Middle Sister says her penmanship was sloppy.
