Amanda watched her older sister, sitting in front of a mirror in her wedding gown admiring her reflection. “Do you like what you see?” Amanda asked.
Joyce, surprised by her kid sister, turned and gave Amanda’s dirty look. “Shouldn’t you be doing your homework or playing with your dolls or something instead of spying on me?”
“What? And miss watching you preen in front of that mirror?” Amanda said.
“You’re such a child, you just don’t understand,” Joyce said. “Tomorrow is my wedding day and I want to make sure I look my best, since it’s my day and all eyes will be focused on me.”
“Well, duh,” Amanda said. “That’s a safe assumption, since you’re the bride and it’s your wedding day.”
“Do you want to see something really sexy that I bought to wear on my honeymoon?” Joyce said. “Go to the closet and pull out the black and red garment that’s hanging there.”
Amanda walked over to the closet, threw open the curtain and and pulled out a skimpy teddy that Joyce asked for. “Ooh, that’s insidious,” she said.
“Insidious?” Joyce said. “Oh no, little sister, that is total seduction.”
“Well, if you really want all eyes to be focused on you tomorrow, Joyce,” Amanda said, “forget the wedding gown and wear your wedding night teddy.”
“Now that would be insidious,” Joyce said, laughing.
