The greatest of Lizzies

My dad rediscovered something similar to “STAY OUT”: a list written by my little sister to convince me to switch bunkbeds with her. Her reasons?

  1. I get the worsest than worse night fright nightmares up on the top bunk.
  2. The sprinklers get me scared.
  3. I want to do a ticket booth on the bottom bunk.
  4. I almost always fall getting up and down the latter.
  5. The Fire alarm is to lowd for my tiny ears.
  6. I like hanging stuff on the bottom bunk.
  7. My shelf is to hard for me to reach from the top bunk.
  8. I won’t be sitting in your bed and you can have your drem catcher.
  9. I will give you a Dime and a hug and a kiss.
  10. I will feel so like having a heart-a-tack if no.
  11. I will cry if you don’t.
  12. I will give you a Present.
  13. You can sleep with Snoopy if you do.
  14. You can play with my blow pens 3 times… but you have to ask.
  15. I won’t inoy you on the 27 or Jan.
  16. One night I will not say anything.
  17. because It was my bed in the beginning.
  18. I love the bottom bunk so dearly so does my blanket and my covers please.

Context: the fire alarm system in our building had a habit of going off in the middle of the night, and these are blow pens.

As I remember, she did end up getting the bottom bunk.

It isn't very nice to nix a link to a site that links to yours. Pearls before swine, I guess.
