How I Ruined Santa for My Sister

This is a true story, according to my sister. Although I do not remember this. My sister shared this story during her toast to me at my wedding reception. I do not think I've ever laughed so hard in my entire life.

According to my sister, when I was around 9 or 10, and she was around 7 or 8, I sat her down on her bed and we had the following conversation:

Me: "Do you know what sex is?"

Heather: "Nooo. . ."

Me: "It's when Dad puts his penis in Mom's vagina!"

Heather: Painful, stunned silence.

After about five minutes of my letting this information sink in, I then add, "And there's no Santa Claus, either!"

My poor sister insists that Christmas was never the same for her after that.

But I am the older sister -- it was my job to share such knowledge with her.

Merry Christmas! (And Heather, I'm really, really sorry I did that to you!)

You are hilarious! I opened this and started laughing so I had to tell my coworkers the story. You are such a good big sister. You've always let me in on the big secrets of life. So thanks!

Love ya!
