Ya know, I actually know many people who have sisters they get along with, and actually like. The one upside to being parentless now is I don't have to deal with mine anymore.

My other sister is normal and fun, same as my brother. The odd sister has managed to alienate all 3 of us and our parents. Mom visits out of a sense of duty and maternal feelings. My Dad (the kindest man in the world) will have nothing to do with her.

Okay, enough about my sister...

Nope. I only have one sister and we get along fine most of the time. We even enjoy each others company. We both agree that while we like and love each other, we wouldn't have been friends if we weren't sisters.

You know, she might just be one of Cat's gypsies. There has to be a reasonable explanation for her being that way. Maybe she fell on her head as an infant. Did a strange babysitter take care of her for a while?
