Ah, yes. Now, in past Daily Good Stuff, I’ve done brothers and sisters. Today, it’s both genders. We love our siblings. And I do mean in and outside of blood. This quote kinda ties that together:
I don’t believe an accident of birth makes people sisters or brothers. It makes them siblings, gives them mutuality of parentage. Sisterhood and brotherhood is a condition people have to work at. Maya Angelou
This is a photo of I and my sisters. Ah, sibling rivalry.
That was my idea. I claim that. Okay, now for a video:
AWWWWWWW! As you see above, I have two little sisters. This was just wonderful.
Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers and prospered.
Some years later, they chatted after having dinner together. They discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother who lived far away in another city.
The first said, “I had a big house built for Mama.”
The second said, ” I had a hundred thousand dollar theater built in the house.”
The third said, “I had my Mercedes dealer deliver an SL600 to her.”
The fourth said, “You know how Mamma loved reading the Bible and you know she can’t read anymore because she can’t see very well. I met this preacher who told me about a parrot that can recite the entire bible. It took twenty preachers 12 years to teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $100,000 a year for twenty years to the church, but it was worth it. Mamma just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot will recite it.”
The other brothers were impressed.
After the holidays Mom sent out her Thank You notes. She wrote:
“Milton, the house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house. Thanks anyway.”
“Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home, I have my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes. The thought was good. Thanks.”
“Michael, you gave me and expensive theater with Dolby sound, it could hold 50 people, but all of my friends are dead, I’ve lost my hearing and I’m nearly blind. I’ll never use it. Thank you for the gesture just the same.”
“Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the good sense to give a little thought to your gift. The chicken was delicious. Thank you.”
Aw dang. It was actually hard to find jokes about siblings, if you can believe that.
I don’t have a sibling fact for you. I have 15! LOOK UNDER YOUR CHAIR and you should see a fact there (or hit this link)!!!!!
In that link, I learned a couple of new things, although I could’ve told you about most of them. I guess it was “Oh, we’re not the only one” type realization. Go and hug your sibling.
