Better Than Rubber/Glue #1LinerWeds

The eldest of Charlie’s three sisters (he’s the first-born) was and is the feistiest person I know. Anything she tackles, she not only succeeds in doing, but succeeds superlatively.

That includes childhood back-talk.

Sometimes their father would call them “half-raised heathens”.

What did this sister reply? You know it wasn’t, “Sorry, Daddy.”

No, she said:

Well, you’re the one
who raised us!

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      She was Daddy’s little girl BECAUSE she back-talked him. Some bullies are like that.
