My Sister: A Conversation and New Hair

A conversation between Lala and myself yesterday.

S: I just heard from the Nightline producer. Looks like my segment will run next week.

L: Dude, are you going to watch it?

S: I think I am going to record it and watch it later. You know, so I can pause and bury my head under a pillow every 23 seconds.

L: Good plan.

S: What if the interview is all cut and spliced and I sound like a total idiot?

L: (Deep sigh) Oh, that is totally what happened to Brenda.

S: Brenda? Who is Brenda?

L: (incredulous laughter) Um, BRENDA. Remember when she was interviewed about her friends by some newspaper? And the reporter totally twisted her words and misquoted her? And like, EVERYONE was furious with her? Donna and Kelly WOULDN’T EVEN TALK TO HER.

S: Wait. Are you referring to a Beverly Hills 90210 episode from 15 years ago?

L: Um, YEAH. Don’t you remember?

(Complete silence.)

L: Seriously, HOW COULD YOU NOT REMEMBER?! Whatever. I’m just saying, it could happen.

S: Thanks for the tip.

L: No problem.

In other news, we had an unofficial sisterly Hair Thursday this week. Lala was sick of her long hair and wanted a change, so she went from this:


To this:


Super cute, huh? Donna and Kelly would be BLINDED by jealousy.

    Oh my gosh her hair is super cute! I would cut mine if I could get it to behave like that, but alas it is not meant to be.

    Your sister has now endeared herself to me for life. What can I say? I’m easy… if you can find a way to insert 90210 randomly into any conversation, there is no question you are a long lost soulmate of mine.

    Saw Lala last night and the hair looks even better in person. You two have good hair genes. Well, good genes in general, but the hair is rockin’.

    Oh, your sister is SO my long-lost 90210 twin. I am freaking thrilled about the spin-off and the return of Kelly Taylor. What could be better???

    That is a conversation I could see myself having WITH MY HUSBAND.

    Yes, I was a big-time fan myself, but he seriously remembers every detail. Sure, we watch reruns on SoapNet often, but still …

    P.S. Lala looks great!

    I love the pauses of slightly annoyed / judgmental silence – you captured the sister language perfectly!! I love lala’s smile :)

    Oh yes, Kelly was PISSED about that!

    Brenda was such the little attention whore.
