Due to circumstances I am not going to delve in (because I don’t want to get depressed or angry) my mom had to support us by herself. So while she was busy running a business to put food on the table (from 8 am to 8pm with a 2 hour siesta) my siblings and I were left to use the “survival of the fittest” or “The jungle law” at home when dealing with each other.
Here is one of examples of how dysfunctional we were.
My brother and I had a hobby of raiding my sisters closet; I for the clothes, the cool posters or tapes or her favourite books and stickers (can you believe it??? STICKERS) and my brother for numerous other objects from my sisters diary (he he he that was fun) to God knows what. Till this day I do not know what would interest a 7-year-old boy in his 14-year-old sisters closet?
Because of that and 100000000 other things, we were calling my mom upwards of at least 20 times a day saying “look what he did” and “look what she did”
To prevent anybody from borrowing anything form anyone (and to save herself the headache) and instead of my Mom sitting us and talking about it (yah who wants to talk) she bought 3 industrial chains and 3 industrial locks to use and lock our closets.
So what did my Bro and I do? We loosened one of my sisters chain links, enough for it not to be noticeable and enough to wiggle the other links out, to get into her closet. I still remember how she went crazy looking for things SHE SOWRE she put back in her closet secure behind chain and lock.
So SIS, if you are reading this, now you know you were not crazy.
Now what’s really knida funny but kinda makes me feel sad at the same time is my Mom got my Bro a chain so he doesn’t feel left out. So he took his stuff that he loved a lot and stuck them in the closet and put the chain up although nobody in a million years would think of taking his marbles, or his favourite stuffed toy or those special cards we got on a trip or that little box he saved some seashells / stones in.
Brother Sister and Mom I love you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much and I would not trade you for anything in the world.
KISSES KISSES and I miss you.
