Yes, it's true. My seester can't spell. As a family, we're embarrassed about it, and we try not to draw too much attention to it but there it is: she can't spell. Because if she could spell, she would know how to write the word "seester." You see, the way we were raised, "'I' says i as in indian, 'I' says i, i, i." (A Beka's big on phonics.) But I'm guessing she was checked out at that point in kindergarten. Wait! that's probably one of those grades she skipped! I told people you going to college at 16 was a big mistake - you didn't even know how to spell "sister!"
