My sister was passing gas while watching TV when we were young. My dad told her to 'put a cork in it'. Later that day, my mom took us shopping. When we got home, my sister asked me which one I thought would fit...as she held out 3 corks she 'borrowed' from the store. I couldn't stop laughing because I thought she was kidding...only to find out later that she wasn't!!
It was thanksgiving and my brother had a brand new gf, we were travelling across state to my sisters but had been invited to his gfs families house for the night on our way. I proceeded to get blackout wasted and smash my face Into the mashed potatoes snorting and laughing like the kid in "a christmas story." Ugh,there are so many stories to choose from,never saw her again
Eldest of 4, It was Easter I was about 10. My parents were going out with family and hush hush asked me along so my brothers did not know. I slipped out and had a lovely evening at a club. I stayed the weekend at my nan's house. When i returned home my friends were keen to inform me that a massive search party was out for me. I thought the babysitter knew oops
My parents were away for the day & left my older sister (~11) and I (~8) in charge. Our younger brother ( about 4 or so) was annoying us during our reign so we threatened him. He didn't stop so we carried out our threat.... Stripped him completely naked taped him to a chair and carried it outside. Our parents never found out since we said we would do it again if he told
We were driving through the country one day when my OLDER sister noticed two pigs working on procreating... she was very naive though, and, with her boyfriend sitting next to her exclaimed, "Look at those silly pigs trying to play leapfrog!" I will never forget my dad's embarrassment.
My Grandma used to recycle EVERYTHING and refused to throw anything away...we used to joke that she recycled the toilet paper. She would pull blocks of cheese, covered in mold, out of the freezer, grate it and serve it to us for dinner. The rule in her house was you had to eat everything off your plate before you could drink anything (even water). It was horrible.
During the summer months, while my parents were at work, my three older brothers and wanted a way to cool off. We didn't have a pool so we made our own. We had a metal trash can that we dumped everything out of. We filled it up with water and each one of us took turns sitting in the trash can.
My sister likes to make home movies but can't get much participation from me or our brother, so she usually plays all the characters. In her funniest video she was a green alien & had a conversation with a human(herself). It's not unusual for my sister to tell us, "I need you to be quiet for the next twenty minutes- I'm filming." You never know will be in one of her films!
