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.

    The phrase, “knocked into next Sunday” comes to mind. LOL
    Still, she gets points for style and, if she were Daddy’s little girl, she probably got away with it, anyway.

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