In accordance to our weekly routine, we gather at my sister’s house every Sunday for dinner following church. Normally she, who does most of the work, chooses the menu but the tradition is that each one of us gets to choose lunch for our birthday.

“This is none of my business,” I said aloud to myself in a valiant, noble effort to mind my own business.

Do I ever listen to myself in these moments of reprimand? Nope.
