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!
