I might not be a very nice person

Baby sister is in a drum core, and they've been invited to perform at the Inaugeration! Whee! And, of course, the Secret Service is going to do a background check on the kids who go.

I called her last night, while she was at work, and left her a message. It went something like this:

"Hey Baby Sis, mom told me about the Core getting invited to the Inaugeration. Congrats. Ah, just wanted to mention, that I may or may not have, at some point, committed some acts that may keep you from getting vetted for this. I'm not really sure what they consider a 'crime' any more...Yeah, just wanted to, you know, put that out there. Bye."

I am, possibly, not a very nice sister. I'm waiting for her to call me back.

Edit: She finally called back:

"What did you do?!"

*me, laughing* Nothing, Nothing...

"No, I want to know what you did! Tell me now!"

I finally conviced her it was nothing, that I just thought it was hilarious to mess with her.


  1. ter in law was up for a big promotion that required a security clearance. She turned it down on the grounds that her brother (my dh) converted to Islam and she didn't want the hassle.

  2. That's unfortunate. I understand why, but I dislike the fact that we've reached the point where a person being of a certain faith makes them automatically suspect.
