Just for Axel.
When I was 14 or so, I was in love with a football player at my high school. I clipped out his picture and preserved it with a thick layer of scotch tape. We talked a lot, and he was very interested in me.....NOT..... I had already been found with the picture in my purse (regular searches) which I was forced to chew...LOL!
Anyhow I wrote him a love letter which looking back on, had to have been a crackup. We began a 'secret' relationship. He wrote me a love letter back. I hid it, or so I thought.
My sister found it one day when we were doing chores. She is 18 months older than me. We were already having a huge fight, so she said she was going to show it to my parents when they got home. She was gloating, I was sweating. I was in a panic, my parents believed heavily in corporal punishment. The picture had been enough. So I planned to get the letter back.
She went in the bathroom to shower. That particular bathroom had a window that looked over the basement stairs. I went Commando on her ass. I climbed by pulling myself up on the ledge, hanging with one hand. I pushed the window open quietly. (Remember she is in the shower singing). I climbed in through the window like a cat. To this day I don't know how I did it. I dropped on the floor, got the letter out of her blue jeans pocket very silently.
I paused by the door, because I knew once I opened the door (from the inside--it was locked!!! from the outside) all hell would break loose.
With one movement, I unlocked the door, opened it and ran. By this time my sister had already jumped out of the shower buck naked and was running after me soaking wet. I had about a 4 second lead on her. I ran to the living room, opened the wood burning fireplace and threw the letter in the middle of the pile of logs. The slow burn started.
By this time she was already on top of me beating the crapola out of me. It didn't matter. I watched that letter burn burn burn.
Freaking HILARIOUS, thanks for the memory. Everytime my sister and I talk about it we cry in tears of laughter.
