The Friendship Ramification

Theme: Home Affairs of Elephant Warriors
Day 1 A: The Animal Acquisition 
Day 3 C: The Comparacion Effect 
Day 4 D: The Dandy Dogs Disposition 

My dad had a transferable job, so every 2-3 years we would pack our luggage and relocate to a new place. I dont know how Mom managed it. The one time I had to do a major packing, made me so paranoid that my husband had to drop me at a mall, go back home and do all the packing himself.

While growing up, we never really had many friends, just the three of us against the world. We would fight, scream, and break each others head, yet stay together. One of our favourite games was Igloo Igloo. We would make a cave with quilts on the bed and pretend it was an Igloo. My sister would cook, I will eat and my brother would become our pet.

I was always the bully and would bribe my sister to cook delicacies. Her cooking is simply mindblowingly.

One tee for one day, I would put the offer, acting all smart, trying not to get duped by my shrewd little sis.

Chuck in the magenta shirt and blue jeans. She would bargain.

Just the shirt, I would reply sternly.


And after 20 minutes, I would be devouring a hot plate of creamy pasta with white sauce and vegetables.


Don't forget to meet the Fair Maiden at Poetry Wagon
and walk along Fisher's Bay

  13. Lol!!! You nailed it again!! Nice deal and bargain! :) I miss my sister now :(

  14. You nailed the humor for sure....have a good week!

  15. Childhood memories are always sweet. Very nice post.
    Lakshmy I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award.Kindly see my post on this subject. Congrats.

  16. That photo of the three of you is beautiful. I'm an only child, so sibling relationships are something of a mystery to me... I can't imagine having a brother or sister who's around *all the time*--would probably have driven me nuts as a child. Then again, I probably would've gotten used to it, wouldn't I? And then I wouldn't be so antisocial as an adult :D

    Great post! And thanks for the visit over at Guilie @ Quiet Laughter -- love seeing your name in the comments.

  17. Lol! I loved the owl pic! Great post...reminded me of my days with my sister!

  18. Brother was the pet :D why oh why this gender discrimination :P


  19. Why brother a pet?
    I agree with Richa...
    It rteminded me of my childhood....I and my 2 brothers were a gang like this :)

  20. I'm an only child, so reading of such sibling exploits is fun. :) Brother as pet! LOL

  21. Sounds like awesome siblings to me! :)
