The best thing about having a sister

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

The best thing about having a sister is that you have a friend for life. The best thing about having Kim as my sister is that I have a fellow “So You Think You Can Dance,” fan for life.

Our parents probably rolled their eyes at some of things my sister and I engaged in – creating and modeling ancient Egyptian costumes, having sleepovers in our closets and screaming out lyrics to our favorite songs on the radio – but it never bothered us.

We had our sisterly fellowship and that was all that mattered.

Even though times have changed and we both went  down different paths, nothing has dented that fellowship. It’s still Kim and me.

“So You Think You Can Dance,” a TV talent competition where viewers vote for their favorite dancers, cements this fact.

Kim and I have watched this show for years. We would cram into the small TV room in her house on F Street in Salida, Colo., to watch the series.

I still remember it – Dimitri, the gorgeous ballroom dancer certainly had my vote although it was the gangly swing dancer who took first prize.

I practically bit my fingernails in anticipation to see who was going to get the title of “America’s favorite dancer.”

It is true; Kim and I are die-hard fans.
