gullible is also written on the ceiling

I've spent a solid portion of my career as an older sister making up ridiculous things and then trying to convince Emily that they're true.

For example, telling her that the word dolphin originated from the words "dual fin," along with a detailed, fictitious, scientific explanation.

Also, that TCU stands for Texas Christian UniVARSITY since they have a great athletic program.

And my personal favorite, that Bush 43's middle name is actually Dubya.

George Dubya Bush.

So please imagine my delight when I took a photo of a pile of concrete in the Target parking lot last weekend and told her it was snow, AND SHE BELIEVED IT.





My work here is done.

hahaha! You've done your job well. One of my proudest accomplishments is romantic love letters from a secret admirer that arrived on Valentine's Day that little sis actually believed were from a secret admirer...for a short period of time. This happened on multiple occasions.

Hahahaha, I love that you have made up so many things Emily actually believes. I am TOTALLY using that "dual fin"/dolphin thing!

It's rare that I dislike being an only child, but this would be one of those times. In high school, there was a girl who I had somehow managed to convince I was in Witness Protective Services. This was my senior year and I had moved to that school district in fourth grade. I wouldn't be surprised if she still believed it to this day.
