little sister [tells me goodbye and kisses me goodnight, then turns to my mom and says]: mom, i need new panties, mine are getting a little too small for me.
mom: really? okay, santa will get you some for christmas.
little sister: MOM!! oh my gosh, seriously?! i have two things to say: 1. that's inappropriate and weird for santa to pick out panties for me, and 2. i need new panties NOW. it's not a gift, it's a necessity. [she's 10 years old, by the way, people and she actually talks like this.]
me: [cracking up] little sis, why don't you just start wearing the kind of panties i wear? i'll get you some tomorrow during my lunch break and bring them to mom's house.
little sister: umm, meredith, stuart little wears bigger underwear than you. no, thanks.
