Yesterday, my brother-in-law accused me of giving gratuitous praise when I said my sister was my favorite sister. After all, she's my only sister. Here is my rebuttal, reposted from my blog Freedom Lovers' Academy.

Ode to My Favorite Sister

You're my favorite sister,

And, after much considered thought,

I'm pretty sure, sister,

It's not because you're the only one I've got.

I love you more than pumpkin pie,

But that's not saying much,

'Cause the love I feel for pumpkin pie,

Is really not a bunch.

I love you more than grocery stores,

And that can be no lie.

'Cause when it comes to grocery stores,

I'd rather tell them goodbye.

I love you more than mornings,

But that's no news to share

'Cause when it comes to mornings,

I can be quite a bear.

I love you more than chocolate,

And now we're getting somewhere.

'Cause though I used to hate chocolate,

I crave it now; I swear.

I love you more than tea,

And you know that means a lot.

'Cause a life without tea,

Is just a horrible thought.

I love you more than knitting,

And now you know you're tops.

'Cause we all know that knitting

at my house never stops.
