Well, She's "Off" Again!
January 3, 2018 12:07pm CST
My sister is always going "off" something. On Sunday, Sis announced that she is "off" caffeine, which is an "off' that occurs at least 5 times a year. Sometimes she is "off" sugar. At other times she is "off" meat. Oh, every now and then, she is "off" carbs. Last month, Sis was "off" diet soda. I believe last summer, Sis was "off" dairy. I know when she is "off" something because all her "offs" make their way to my house. We have our freezer, our pantry, and our refrigerator filled to the brim with Sis's "off" items. When we have no room left to store Sis's "offs," we share those "offs with friends and family. Sis has always made decisions only to have those decisions abandoned a few days, a few weeks, or a few months later. Luckily, those make-then-drop decisions are not of a serious nature.

I used to, but then I told her that I was no longer storing the things she no longer wanted. She used to "give" us non-food items when we had the big house, then she would tell us she wanted an item back. I did put a stop to that behavior. Whatever comes here, stays here.

I'm technically "off" sugar, caffeine and wheat. But I'm a sucker for sugar, wheat can be hard to avoid if one doesn't like being a nuisance and i find it hard to turn down a social cup of coffee. So I'm probably a lot like your sister

I love that photo is that your sister there as a little girl? Our freezer would not store very much so I am glad I don´t have anyone who goes off things like that. Very funny story the way you tell it and she keeps you on your toes you must admit.

Yes, that is Wendy. I think she must have been 3 years old in that photo. One time, she brought over so much meat we shared it with neighbors because our freezer could not hold it all. She certainly is not getting that giant can of coffee back!!
