Why I love my sisters

There are many reasons I love my sisters.  Probably the biggest reason is that we tease, play and have fun with each other.    Case in point - the emails we exchanged today:

Good morning. 
I have come the realization that one of you is a thief.  I noticed something missing on Monday evening as I cleaned up my bathroom.  I was at first under the impression it had just been moved to a separate location.  Perhaps some one needed it in a different bathroom.  However after a thorough search of both Erin's bathroom and Mom's bathroom, I came up empty handed.  I soon realized that some one must have stolen it.  I'm talking about my HAIR SPRAY!  My hair has been soft and shiny all week without my spray.  I am truly distraught by the loss.  What's worse, it was one of my beloved sisters that pilfered my hair spray.  I'm not even sure I want to know which one you is behind this heinous act of theivery.  I just want to know one thing:
How do you sleep at night?
your victimized sister

It was me! But by accident! We have the same kind and I thought it was mine! I'm sorry! I will mail you $3.33 because I know that is how much it costs at Walmart.Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry

Erin!?! YOU!?! I can't believe it!  I would have expected this from Katie, except she typically borrows mom's things.  I even would have suspected Jennie, she's got 4 kids, she needs to find ways to save money.  But you? I would never have suspected. 
Actually, it's cheaper in the Clearfield Wal-Mart.  I'm pretty sure it's like $2.94 here, possibly less

HEY  I may have 4 kids and be a little frugal (ok, cheap) but I don't steal.  At least not intentionally!  And FYI - my hair is too unruly to be tamed by hairspray as evidenced by the Monica Bing

inspired style you witnessed at Brittany's graduation party.  No stinking spray is going to  tame that wild beast, so I don't even bother!   

I am deeply offended by your suspicion that I would steal something of yours.  I can't find my camera, but I'm not going around accusing one of you guys of stealing it because it was likely one of my children. So, in the future, if you want to accuse someone in my family of stealing, I think pointing the finger at one of my slick fingered kids would be more appropriate.  

Good Day!   

I said GOOD DAY!

Lara  then launches into a completely new line of conversation, linking us to a story about sisters that give birth within 36 hours of each other.

I was thinking that maybe a bigger story would be, "Woman gives birth to twins - one is her biological child, the other, her sister's baby!"

Aunt Lisa had a baby at 40.  Erin has plenty of time.  And besides you did such a good job helping to crate train her dog, I'm sure you can hold onto that baby for the first couple of weeks/months/years to help with its training.

Hey, back off MOM (and society)! I'll get married when I get married and I'll have kids (or someone will have them for me) when I'm ready! People have kids older now! Look at Kelly Preston! She's like 49 or something!
