    Your father probably got away with a lot just using that one line. “I’ve got five daughters.” I can picture him a in a bar with the stranger next to him saying to the bar tender. “Give this guy a drink on me. Make it a double”.

    I’m going to send this to my Dad. :). Funny and charming as always!

    That was wonderful. Sometimes an explanation is the worst kind of truth a policeman can hear: and I know they hear many crazy excuses. Delightful, as always!

    Did this really happen?? Where’d you all go and who was taking the cat on their trip? Too funny!

    1. Nicole Smeltzer Avatar

      Ha, yes it did! We were on a long summer trip (Dad took a summer job across the country, so the poor cat came with.)

    This is great! I am one of five girls too. I look forward to reading more!

    I love this and can definitely relate! I have six sisters and I’m in the middle–though my family is a “blended” modern family since they’re not all related to each other (divorce/remarriage). But any house dominated by girls makes for an entertaining time! Can’t wait to see what’s next.

    Not feeling very bloggy today, so I’ll leave you with a reblog. This is from one of my favorite blogs, The Middlest Sister. Seriously, check it out when you can. Quite cool and hilarious!
