My sister and I text frequently. I was reading another blog about “public transit stories” earlier today. It reminded me of a hilarious text conversation I had with my kid sister yesterday after her ride home on public transportation in D.C.
Kid sis: OMG…am on bus and this woman sat next to me and she started reading a book and highlighting stuff. Which meant that she was putting her arm/elbow/etc ALL over me. It seriously made me uncomfortable and so I moved when another seat opened.
So…have you been molested on a bus today!?!”
Me: Why didn’t you say, “Get your body off of me you nut job!?”
Kid sis: I wanted to soooo badly say,
“Um, excuse me, you are very liberal with your arms and it’s making me uncomfortable.
Touch my thigh one more time and see what happens.”
I love my kid sister’s one-liners.
