Don't Mess with the Sisters

Brother made the mistake of telling Sister not to get anything black for Mom to wear to his wedding. He informed her that black was the color of mourning and thus for funerals, not weddings. He should know better than to try to instruct his most fashion conscious Sister. Not only did Brother tell Sister that black was inappropriate for weddings, he also did some other things that caused him to fall from favor with the sisters.

He should know better than to mess with us. He really should. After all, he has 39 years experience with his sisters. All three of us have purchased black dresses for the wedding. Even Daughter has a black dress. At first it wasn't intentional, but when I realized I was the only one who wasn't wearing black, I went out tonight and purchased a black dress. Far Away Sister said that years from now we'll look at pictures of us in black and won't know if they are from Dad's memorial service or Brother's wedding. We expect the two will be very close together. We might wear different dresses for the memorial service. It depends on how hard Brother works at getting back into our good graces.
