Do you have a sibling you just love to pieces but who gets under your skin faster than the speed of sound? I do and she’s my little sister, we’ll call her Tia. Now Tia has some quirks about her and honestly, she has been this way all of her life. For example, if I should happen to bend over for something setting on the counter, she likes to take the free shot and slap my ass as hard as she can. And then smile. Don’t worry, payback is a bitch. I don’t want anyone thinking that she is a mean spirited person because she's not at all. She’s actually one of the nicest and genuinely caring people that I know.
When I was a kid, about age 12, my sister was just 6 years and we lived in this very nice brand new Condominium in the suburbs. My mother worked a lot and I was responsible for watching and taking care of my little sister.
We lived on the Third floor (the top floor of the building and each floor had a laundry room. I had a fairly decent understanding of the use of both floor models of the washer and dryer but I also had a fascination with how big the inside of the dryer appeared to be. Then one day I had this cool idea.
I wanted to see if my little sister, Tia, could fit inside. I asked her to get inside and even at the precious age of 6 she knew that maybe it wasn't such a good idea. Smart girl but a tad bit too trusting of her prankster sister.
“Come on Tia, I just want to see if it would rotate. It might be fun.”
Trustingly, she climbed inside. She actually fit with room to spare! I assured her that I would shut the door for a short while and turned on the dryer. I really wasn't sure it would rotate because a human person surely weighed more than wet clothes, right? Before I knew it, I heard “THUMPITY THUMPITY THUMP!”
I opened the door fast thinking I was going to have to do some fancy talking with my mother later on if Tia was spitting out lent balls for the next several days..
As Tia climbed out, she looked a little shockey and I'll never forget what she said next.
“That sure did get hot fast.”
My response was, “Don’t tell mom.”
