My youngest sister is 9 years and 6mths younger that I am. She came into my life and very happily upended/ intruded on the sister bonding of my other sister and myself. Being so much younger than us older girls she put alot of effort trying to be included, to be a just like us and as a result she was just plain annoying.
So as big sisters can be, one day when she was being particularly annoying grabbing for something I looked at her fingers— she had these wonderfully slender, long, perfect for piano playing fingers– and told her with a scoff-
‘You know only an alien would have such long skinny fingers! Take them off of me!’
Being the confident, spoilt brat that she was/is, it slid off her back like water does off a duck. But she did move her hands, making me giggle. Yes I could be a meanie.
And when ever I felt to pull up her socks I would call her an alien and she would bite out a retort that her daddy says she is beautiful so there! Which she is.
I live a few thousand miles away now so we three sisters, especially me and the youngest, keep in touch through BlackBerry messenger.
Last week she sent me a picture of this long, skinny thing looking like a piece of string laying on the ground right outside of the kitchen door. Not wanting to believe what I thought it was I bb’ed …‘WTH is that!!!!!’
To which she responded…On my planet they call it a snake!
Not to be outdone I said –
And which planet is it you hailing from these days?
Oh come on I couldn’t resist!
Of course she LOL LOL. as did I.
I haven’t done this in ages brain has been busy busy so excited that today I am joining on the Write on Edge RemembeRed prompt:-
In honor of April Fool’s Day, we asked were asked to write about a time that a prank, joke, or piece of gossip twisted out of control, producing unexpected results. Unexpected doesn’t have to mean negative! We can’t wait to read about a time when something meant to be funny turned into something…else. The word limit was 350 words
Hope I did a good job.
