You know better than I

I learned something new recently.

It's probably not a good idea to sing "You know better than I" when your siblings are around. Especially little sisters. Especially little sisters who have just hinted that they think you should do all their chores for them.

For some strange reason, they're liable to get the impression that you're singing to them. Never mind the spiritual references in the song. Never mind the fact that their suggestion was the last thing on your mind when you were singing.

"I've let go of the need to know why, for You know better than I"

This really boosted my sister's ego. The look on her face said it plainly: "Sarah! I've been trying to tell you all along!"

Congrats on your most pointless post.

:-) Gee- little sibs. are great at picking up "under-lying" meanings in songs. :-)

Yes, I do have a VERY fun family! :-) And getting more fun (as it grows) all the time. :-) Mmm hmm...the one bad thing about xanga...it doesn't enable outside readers to post.

Poor you, Sarah ... i know how siblings can get (believe me! i've got a ton of them myself)

Wait! Who wrote the story, Sarah or Andrew?

Sarah said...

You mean who wrote this post? I did. Just look at the bottom, where it says, 'posted by Sarah'.

I haven't seen "Joseph, King of Dreams" recently, but I've been listening the soundtrack. :)

That's what I thought, but then you wrote he had an interesting way with words so i was kind of confused.

Have a great day!

Oh, I see. I was replying to the first comment when I said that.

Sarah, wonderful post. :) But I must say, you do the exact same thing to me! Actually, you were the one that started it! And, naturally, you being my older sis, I just play along! :)
