They were siblings, five (Able) and almost nine (Ready). As girls will, they fought like cats and dogs—sometimes.
Able: You are wrecking my life. You almost ribbed my new book.
Ready: You pushed me—like this—with your elbow. I’m telling Daddy.
Able: You are in Grade 3, almost four, Ready, and eight—almost nine. I’m just little. But I know the rules. Big sisters have-ta look after little sisters. I’m not mad at you, but you’re not nice to me.
Ready: You are such a crybaby. I’m still telling Daddy. I’m going to play Moshi Monsters on Daddy’s Laptop.
Able: Wake for me, Wake for me!
