Biggest shock this Christmas: seeing my sister's new tattoo. Not just the fact that she got tattooed, which was a big enough surprise, but a SNAKE is not exactly your usual mini-van-driving, suburban-hockey-mom tattoo.
When my husband asked "why a snake?" she explained that she was born in the year of the snake. While the rest of us were trying to remember our Chinese astrological signs, not quite sure, our youngest sister had no problem remembering hers:
"Oh, I was born in the year of the Princess".
