Sister Tiff

Laura: *yawn* Um, your blog post isn't scheduled for tomorrow and I'm getting tired.
Lisa: *makes knife gesture to neck* Yeah, because I'm writing. Remember our rule?
Laura: Well, I can't exactly fill out your Fug Girls bracket myself, now can I?
Lisa: You can't even fill out your bracket, so no, I bet you can't.
Laura: Geez, what's your problem?
Lisa: Oh nothing except for the fact that I've been working all day on our synopsis and Ben has a weird mark on his head.
Laura: Wait, what kind of mark?
Lisa: It's white with red around it. It's hard to explain, okay? But it's a mark. On his head.
Laura: He probably just hit it on the crib or something.
Lisa: Ugh. My life just sucks. Ben has a mark on his head and I'm stuck writing a synopsis AND a blog post.
Laura: I'll do the blog post. Relax.
Lisa: AND responding to all of our emails.
Laura: Oh...yeah, um, since I've gotten my new phone, I've gotten kind of bad at that. I read them. I just don't respond.
Lisa: Thanks. A lot.
Laura: I'm not good at the touch screen, okay? You're the one who pressured me to get rid of the Alias, so technically it's your fault.
Lisa: Everything is my fault. *Googles white and red mark on side of baby's skull*
Laura: Can't wait to read the synopsis!
Lisa: I hate you.

Sibling love is such a beautiful thing. It's a true art form. *hope Ben is okay*

Jill Hathaway said...

So much. Synopsis. Hate.

Is it weird that I have conversations like this with myself almost

everyday?

PS love the sound Wupshaw

Kerri Cuev said...

Lol, yeah those touch screens can be a b****!

Hope the mark is gone.

Tracey Neithercott said...

The way Lisa feels is how I felt during every school project. Not fun. :)

Don't worry, Laura. The touch screen gets soooo much easier.

Jessi said...

Aw, you guys make me wish I was writing a book and running a pink empire with my sister. :) Lisa, I feel you for the ugh with everything right now. Laura, I feel you for the touch screen. Went back after a week and got a phone with a qwerty keyboard!

Little Ms J said...

You guys are so much kinder than me and my sister. I'd try to convince her she was adopted again, she'd try to diagnose me with something tragic and then I'd IM dad and ask him if it was possible mom had an affair since Jenn doesn't look like the rest of us. Fun. Times.

Hope little Ben is ok!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

LOL. Ah, sisterly bliss. I know it well. :-)

Matthew MacNish said...

If it's any consolation I don't hate either of you. And I finished The Liar Society last night and loved it.

So there.

Sara B. Larson said...

Ah sisterly love (which I am an expert on being the oldest of five girls), and the life of a mommy writer. Thanks for helping me not feel alone in my craziness. ;)

Conda V. Douglas said...

Even though I have one sibling, a brother 9 years older than me, this post was very, very familiar...

ali said...

LOL. I'm glad you guys are such exhibitionists (yes I said it) because I need my daily dose of LiLa hilarity. :)

Marsha Sigman said...

I can't handle these crazy out of control fights between you two!!!

Calm down or I'm telling Mom.

Sara McClung ♥ said...

hahaha this is great :) I can just see the convo happening irl.

and dude, I'm the same way with my phone. I suck at typing on the touch screen, so my emails get read and then I don't respond until way later. sigh.

Nicole Zoltack said...

lol Ah, sisterly love!

Jemi Fraser said...

Love it! :) My sister and I have had a few similar moments!

Wannabe Writer said...

Makes me wish I had a sister!

Hope Ben is okay!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Oh, sounds like Ben is feeling synopsis sympathy stress. I always get covered in red marks when I'm stressing. You should see my neck right now. It's like one big red blob. *hopes it's just sympathy stress*

Also, I have that problem with the phone. I'll often read emails on it, and then choose not to respond, because okay, I can only use one pointer finger to type on my stupid touch screen and if anyone sees me I'll look like an idiot, and also, it's a pain to type out long emails with one stupid finger. So I wait, and then I forget to respond when I'm at my computer because the email is no longer a bold UNREAD. I think we need a better system. Dumb phone.

Also, when I read your blog post title, I wondered why I'd never heard of this fourth sister. I thought maybe you were revealing something new and huge, like a fourth sister you guys keep hidden.

Christa said...

Outstanding girls! Just like sisters. I will answer your emails from now on if you don't mind my blanket response:
The LiLa are very busy and important right now. They will get back to you when the fabulous thing they are doing becomes boring and they have more time.

Elana Johnson said...

Dude, my email answering has gotten so much worse with my phone too! I read it, don't respond. FAIL.

Karen Akins said...

Uh oh. How did you hack into my sister's and my e-mail accounts?

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
