My sister is mad

I swear my sister has a screw loose, ok I know we don’t see each other much, in fact can’t remember the last time I saw her, it’s never been the same since my nephew was put in prison. Long story, and to be honest, I’m not even sure if I’m allowed to talk about it, anyway, we are still friends on Facebook and sometimes she will message me on what’s app. 

So, she has started to sing in a choir (rock choir) which i think it’s a national thing and they all have local groups. Well, she makes it out that her family is very musical and there’s nothing better than getting her family together to have a sing a long and play musical instruments, she said she used to do this with her family when she was growing up. 

Now, unless I have a crap memory, this never happened, my dad even hated musicals, the first time I saw Mary Poppins was after he died, we had a record player which was updated to a CD player when they came out (my dad had to have the latest thing) but we had about ten CD’s. It was the same bloody tape in the car when we drove anywhere, including the south of France, Elton john album, this could be my reason for my dislike for Elton john. 

Anyway, back to my sister, we never sung, never played any musical instruments, tell a lie, just remembered my dad bought an electric organ thingy, and he played very slowly, very badly. I swear to god my sister thinks she was brought up as a member of the Von Trapp family. I just don’t know here she thinks she was brought up. To be honest I haven’t heard her sing recently, so she maybe good, but judging by my family inability to hold a note, I’m not holding much hope. 

My sisters Facebook post

I was running late to work this morning as I would behind a member of staff who always drives at 20mph, so the normal 10 minute journey took double, so I wasn’t in he best of mood anyway, 

From the car park to work, checked my Facebook quickly and noticed my sister had put a new post up, it said it’s been 30 years since our dad died, and. It a day goes by without her thinking about him, and she treasures the few photos she has, she has been very tearful this week, 

My sister hated my dad, she practically disowned him for many years, and was never there when he was very ill with cancer, 

A friend of hers messaged saying that he was a very attractive man, my sister replied to this that he was and always had an eye for the ladies, 

He certainly did considering the amount of affairs he had! 

I was only 14 when he died, and he been ill for a number of years, so don’t have that many memories of him, I know my sister only does this so she can have the pity vote from her friends, personally I think that is just wrong to use someone like that, but hey, what do I know?
