A New Convert

The converting has been done and we have a new lamb to our flock.

My baby sister, known in code as Hank, is the brains of the family. She is the terminal student and politic-loving geek.

I take full credit in her quest for education, as I led the ferocious pack of flesh-eating wolf-sisters that constantly made fun of her naivity and innocence. Now she knows everything there is to know about a skilled nursing facility's policies and procedures and loves old people as much as I do. So don't ever question what she says in that area.

I worked as a Supervisor on the weekends at the swankiest nursing home in the area. It has a year-long waiting list and is nicer than most of our homes. And it housed the funniest old people on earth.

I would call Erin, oops, I mean Hank, and beg her to get her administrator's licence. She blew me off for 2 years. I knew that with her freakish OCD tendencies, she could run a facility like clockwork and make $90,000 starting out.

She tried social work, CPS, to be exact and that didn't work. Then she transferred to APS, which was dealing with the elderly and she thrived. For 2 years.

Then almost overnight, she became a damn genius and decided to persue the Admin. avenue. And I alone pat myself on the back for making her dreams come true.

You will love her as we do, all 105 lbs. of blonde cynicism.

She can't help herself. I often take advantage of her hatred of dirt and invite her over so she will clean for me. I'm a bitch like that.

Left Hank a Welcome comment. Can't wait to see what happens with you guys this weekend. BTW,hubby couldn't wait to trash the first chair, because I'm always bringing in some other POS. I sat in it and was afraid it was going to fall to the ground, surely it wasn't because of any other reason but the damn thing was coming apart at the seams.
Did you ever get my e-mail reply. I did receive one e-mail from you and I replied, but I don't know if you can get any e-mail from me. ttyl Oh, BTW it took me a while to figure out what BTW was, can you tell I'm BLONDE!!! Got the POS pretty quick, HAHA, I hoping AB gets a laugh again.

You left out the part about how intellectual you look with your hand like that.

Only I know different.
