I was 4 years old. My little sister, Maryann, was 2.
Our mom had just bought us these really awesome kid scissors so we could cut out shapes from fun construction paper.
Only problem is….I wanted to cut Maryann’s Cabbage Patch Doll’s hair.
Maryann said no.
So I asked if I could cut her hair.
She said yes to that one.
I cut off all her beautiful, blonde hair from the tip of her bangs to the very middle of her head.
Then I ordered her to tell our parents that she cut her own hair.
She did what I said.
My dad got so mad!
Maryann was bald. My mom told every one she looked like Benjamin Franklin.
For years my parents always thought that she had done it to herself. I never told the truth until I was 8.
At that point it was a hysterical story & Maryann had hair again.
But, we still refer to her as good ole Ben every now & again.
Did you ever do something like this to a sibling? Or better yet (maybe worse) did you have something like this done to you?
