"Mush! Mush!"

Text message conversation between me sister and I. (Background: my sister damaged her knee badly during the 2008 Iditarod when she lost control of her sled and had to have several surgeries on it. This past winter, deciding it would be a good idea to take up snowboarding, she injured the same knee again and has to undergo another surgery. A surgery we've spoken about MANY times previous to this.)



Sister: My surgery is booked for April 12th
Me: For the bone growing in your neck? (long standing joke, you wouldn't get it)
Sister: Asshole!
Me: What's wrong with your asshole?
Sister: Um, you're the asshole!!!! I am having knee surgery!!!
Sister: You're kidding, right?
Me: BAHAHAHAHAHA
Sister: Yer soooooo funny.
Me: I was laughing.
Meh, maybe you had to be there. Also, my sister never really competed in the Iditarod, but she has been to Alaska on a repositioning cruise.




PS. A repositioning cruise is where a cruise ship is moved between seasons, like a ship that travels the coast of Mexico during the winter is brought up to Vancouver or Seattle to cruise to Alaska for the summer.

  3. Bah! It's too early in the morning for this kind of thought provoking humor.

    I'll come back later when I've thought of a witty smart-assed comment.

    You're welcome! :)

  7. Gotta love bro/sis relationships. I think you should offer to clean her bathroom for a month while her leg is held up. Just saying.

  8. It's always a good sign when you can freely text profanities at your relatives. It's healthy-like.

  11. I've never run the Ididarod but I'm staying at a Holiday Inn Express tonight. I wish I could say I was joking about that...

  12. LOL Love the conversations you have with your sis. Still wish my bro and I were that close.

  13. Great text messages. I could feel the love between you two. I mean that seriously. When I call my brother an asshole it is because he really IS an asshole.

  14. I'm hoping you're not going to help her during her recovery. Somehow I think she'd be better off.

  16. Did I ever tell you about the time John turned to me in a movie theater after seeing the word "Ididarod" on the screen and said "I thought it was called an "Ididarun."?
    And then I turned to him and said, "Nope, but it would make sense. And before they compete, they would call it an 'I'm-gonna-run'."?
    No? Ah, that was funny.

  17. I'm not certain what an Iditarod is...

  18. Are repositioning cruises free? If so, I'm all over that! As long as they don't serve Spam like they did on that one cruise where they lost power and didn't have anything to feed anyone. That DID happen, right?

  19. I need surgery on my asshole too... Although, I'm pretty sure my boss would have to sign a consent form or something...

  22. I never had a brother, so missed out on the brother/sister relationship. I used to think I missed this. Maybe not.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I had to pay attention, was duped, AND there was no frilly Vader picture?! Whose blog is this?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Am I an idiot for not ever having heard the word Ididarod before?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've suffered through 32 years of conversations just like these with my brother. I feel for her.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hahahahaha! Whoa, wait a second. Your sister competed in the Iditarod? She is mega cool!

    Good luck to her on her surgery.

  27. Too funny. I wish I had that kind of humor with my sis.

  29. This is really the perfect snapshot of a good brother/sister relationship. Love and sarcasm.
