And then there were 11

Published by admin under family

People tend to have a mostly harmless arrogance:  They want to believe whatever they have is better than anyone else’s, be it cars, phones or jobs.  While we can attribute this to bragging and pride, sometimes there is truth in the mix because sometimes your phone really is better than mine. (please…join me in ignoring a discussion of how subjective “better” is…)  And while family may not be the most common representation of this, it is no certainly no exception.  I say this because I often tell people my family is the most awesome on the planet, but it really is true, they are a unique group of people who have amazed me and inspired me my whole life.

My aunts and uncles are all very much alike and very different.  The similarities are in their closeness (OK I imagine some sibling bickering goes on behind us kid’s backs, but for the most part they are very well behaved), the sense of humour and positive attitudes they all seem to display and their sense of fun. The differences are things like career, personality quirks and the like.
