Today is my sister's birthday, so I will list some things about her:

  • Before she was born, my brother and I had a bet whether the new baby would be a boy or girl. I won. My brother is famous for quipping, "You were right, I was wrong."
  • She spit up a lot as a baby.
  • When she was just learning how to stand up, my brother and I would shout, "Baby coming down the runway!" and push her down. She would laugh her little baby ass off.
  • While she was in the playpen, we'd play this game where you put your hand on the mesh wall, and she'd put her hand against yours, and you'd move your hand and she'd move hers, and so on.
  • My brother and I called her chubby all the time when she was little. Amazingly, she doesn't have any sort of complex about this (at least, so far as I can tell.)
  • She used to tell people that she wanted to be a model, a realtor, and a mom when she grew up (she wanted to be all three of those at the same time).
  • She had a buttload of hats when she was like 3.
  • We used to call her Miss Win, and then Winnie. Now I just call her Win. My dad tells me not to, because "Erin is such a pretty name".
  • She's the only one of the kids (I'm counting the dog as a kid, shut up) whose first name doesn't start with K. But her middle name starts with K, so I guess that's alright.
  • If she had been born a boy, her name would have been Colin.
  • My mom used to make a pun on "Erin go braugh" and say, "Erin go bra-less!"
  • Erin's the most easygoing person I know. Growing up, she took so much shit from me and Kevin, and now she doesn't let anything bother her, which I think is a really admirable trait (and the exact opposite of me).
  • She is 16 today, so she'll be getting her license any day now. Watch out for a black 1998 Accord.
  • Erin's and my legs are about the same length, but she's 5'10" and I'm only 5'2".
  • A couple years ago, Erin and I went to Best Buy. I was talking to Rob, and then one of Rob's co-workers came up. After Erin and I left, the co-worker told Rob that he thought Erin was hot. Rob replied that Erin was only 13/14 (I don't remember when this story occurred).
  • She used to play The Sims. Haha, dork. Okay, I used to play it too.
  • When she was little, she had a white stuffed dog that she named Dogga.
  • There's a really hilarious home video taken around Christmastime, where I'm about 7 or 8, Kevin's 5ish, and Erin's 3. We're all dancing to the American Graffiti soundtrack, and then Erin gets right in front of the camera, lifts her shirt up to her neck, and starts hitting her stomach. We watched this a few months ago and she laughed so hard she was crying. I can't wait until she gets engaged/married so I can show that to her fiancĂ©/husband.
  • She obviously looks up to her older sister, because she's taking her second year of French in HS.
  • She can draw and paint really well.

UPDATE: Erin said, "hahahhaha that made me laugh so hard. THANK YOU!!! i loved it"
