What do you think it is…the water or just the alluring Florida name. This time is my baby sister. I am nine years older than she is and she is visiting from the Dominican Republic. Do we have a lot to catch up. And in Spanish!
But dinner for her was a hamburger, fries and a soda. So unvegan…and so unDominican. This is becoming harder by the minute. Everything and everyone that surrounds me is trying to keep me a carnivore. One of my Face friends told me he was having a juicy steak. Yeah, right. Enjoy the hormones and the cloned corn that those poor cows have to eat. No grass apply to the steaks that are readily available from most groceries stores.
My sister bought chocolates (milky ones that I do not eat), cheesecake, ice cream, all kinds of cookies, and here I am chewing on mostly grass and some fruits. But frankly, I feel good about passing up all those goodies. I don’t try to save her from all those arteries clogging material. She is younger and can take it, and besides I do not want to spoil her having a good time with the oldest sister. This is about having a fab time without trying to discuss our aging issues.
What aging issues? We are chic and look really good. At least that’s what we tell each other.
Oh, the blessings of sisterhood!
So…it was today…14 September, 2011…a day of enjoying the privilege of having a fun sister, practice Spanish and remember good younger times.
Your Happy Contessa
