The Tale of Two Silly Sisters
Once upon a time, there were two silly sisters.
They were pretty happy being silly,
Despite their rather disturbing facial features at times, one of the sisters was happy to have just extracted a pea that had been in her nose for 3 days, and the other just got lasik. What's there not to be happy about?
One day, these silly sisters faced one of the biggest crises they had ever faced together.
One of the sisters saw a beautiful specimen of a man walking on campus. And not just any man. I mean, look at him! He's worth kissy faces and more!
These silly sisters dreamed about him,
They even sat in front of the mirror for hours, practicing looking as attractive as possible to impress him.
But they knew that in the end, one of them was going to win this man's heart, and that meant that the other was going to lose.
At first, they were both determined to win him. This was war after all.
But after a while, neither of them felt very happy. And this did not help them attract the man.
In order to save their relationship (they were sisters after all) one of the sisters tried going after other men. She wasn't too successful. Some were too tall, others too short, and then there was that one who wouldn't stop talking about his job cleaning fish tanks.
Then, one summer day, the man asked one of the silly sisters on a date. The other one tried to be happy for her.
And actually, she was. Because the man and the silly sister ended up falling in love and living happily ever after. The silly sisters went back to being just as silly as before, except this time, they had another silly face to join theirs
