The Problem With Having Sisters!!
Not sure what to do with these girls. Robyn was asked out this weekend by a young man wanting to take her a play. She accepted wholeheartedly and was looking forward to it. And then on another day a different young man asked her out as well to attend the same play. (poor girl) She accepted his invitation as well. Lots of luck getting yourself out of that one!! So she comes to me with: "Mom, what am I going to do? I told them both yes and now I don't know what to do!!" Well, Robyn, this is your pickle, you figure out a way to get out of it I told her. She thinks a minute then quickly says: "Hey, do you think Christie could go with the first one I told yes, and I'll go with the 2nd?"
So, is this how it works? You can just pawn off a date to one of your sisters and everything is hunky dory?! I don't think so!
Well, long story short, she asked Christie and she said no way, I'm not taking your hand me downs, it's enough I had to take all your clothes growing up, I don't want your boys too.
As if that's not enough, it's been suggested by more than one of my girls that if a boy asks them for their phone number and they aren't interested they give him one of their sister's cell numbers!! That's a way to get out of a pickle I guess, just pass the ball to someone else and see if it works. My father called on my mother's sister Donna one night for a date, Aunt Donna was sick and couldn't go so he took my mother instead. Apparently it all worked out all right!!!
