Female Eccentricity When There Is No Electricity


My sister: She’s Crazy. My parents had her institutionalized when she turned ‘Sour Sixteen’. I see her every week; every single week I listen to all of her perversions and delusions. I have been an ear for that girl for twenty years.

– And now you understand why I have to cut your tongue out.

    Looks like she’s not “just” crazy, that sister. I like the implied connection with things much more dangerous than insanity.

    I love the dark humor of this piece.  The last phrase pulls the story together and really gives you the narrator’s perspective.
