THE TIME I BELIEVED MY SISTER'S LIE

  1. We were at our neighborhood playground.
  2. I was roughly 5-6 years old.
  3. She said to me, with a confidence only older sisters seem to have, "You know we were supposed to be twins, you just took a long time coming out."
  4. I felt really guilty for messing up the specialness of twins that could've been.
  5. She is 7.5 years older than me.
  6. We have a brother who was born in between the two of us.
  7. This resided in my subconscious for years until I thought about it rationally and realized it was not true.
  8. I'll never forget that she tricked me this way.
