My little sister Grace recently posted a meme that asked a whopping 81 questions about someone you know.
In the interest of time and, well, interest, I’m shortening it to 8 questions and using it as a way to introduce you to my little sis.
1) What’s her name?
2) Do you get along with this person all the time?
Nope, which is what one of my old teacher’s said distinguishes a true friendship from a fake one. Grace and I are very similar, both rather passionate and emotional–which means we also tend to butt heads on occasion.
3) Has she ever cooked for you?
I believe she has-on many occasions, I’m sure, but I’m remembering a hamburger and pasta dish at my house. She cooks on occasion, but has mentioned that she feels that every time she cooks something a certain one of our brothers “one-ups” her by cooking something similar (only better, in her mind).
4) Does she have a nickname for you?
That’s a good question-I’m not sure? Grace? Help me out here!
5) How many times do you talk to this person during a week?
It depends. Sometimes several times, sometimes never. We live at a distance and I’m not much of a phone person. But we enjoy talking whenever I’m home or she’s up here, and we share the occasional text or Facebook conversation. Grace also knows that if she ever wants to talk with me about something, she can post it on her blog, of which I am a faithful reader and commenter.
6) Have you ever had a sleepover with this person?
Once upon a time, Grace slept on a rollaway bed in the school room. Then Anna and I stole her to live with us in our room. She probably will experience lasting dysfunctional sleep patterns for having spent her preschool and elementary years sharing a bedroom (and often a bed) with her teenaged sisters. Now, we have the boring sort of sleepovers, where she comes to stay at my house overnight because that maximizes time together when there’s an hour and a half drive to be made to get together.
7) Would you date this person’s siblings?
Absolutely not. Unlike some siblings of mine, I do not date my siblings’ siblings.*
8) When is the next time you will see this person?
Next Thursday, at her show choir concert (in which she has a solo part-You go girl!)
Grace blogs at A Teen Girl’s Mind. There, she shares, well, what’s on her mind. Generally, it’s angsty, emotionally-charged philosophical-political-high-school-drama-filled stuff. (Which I realize may not be your cup of tea. Fine with me, but I love her bunches and always enjoy interacting with her about what she’s written.)
