Recently, while looking around my Internet neighborhood, I noticed something called “The Question of the day.” That day the question was “What are your family responsibilities?” It struck me as an interesting question so later I devoted some pondering time to it.
At first the thought entered my mind that no one would read a list that I might compose that included all my personal duties within my family, legitimate or imagined.
Another thought I had, which was also a question was, “How does one become responsible for something; anything within their family group?”
I didn’t believe that anyone would enjoy reading the list of 100 things about me that I composed a year or two ago either but I came to find out just how wrong I was about that also.
I want to take a stab at making a list of my family responsibilities in spite of that risk that posting it here has the potential for boring lots of folk, or not. For that statement to be true I would need to have a lot of regular readers and I don’t believe that I do, really.
The first thing on my list should be:
· Being wrong about more things than anyone else in the family.
I believe that may well be because I am so eager to show off my accumulated life skills.
Among my siblings I have always been known as “Professor Know-it-all” and for good reason.
It’s because I’ve always believed that I DID…Know-it-all that is. When it turns out that I don’t know it all then I am deemed to be wrong, thus the motive for item number one on my list.
All joking aside, I do seem to have a much longer list of responsibilities than any other family member.
In an effort to have anyone who may be reading my lengthy list to be fully informed and aware, I feel I should provide another list and that is a list of who it is that makes up MY little family group.
Me, myself and I (Husband, brother-in-law and human to our pets)
Maureen (wife, sister and top human to our pets)
Gail (sister to Maureen, sister-in-law to myself and number two human to our pets)
Jenny (Top Dog, spoiled rotten Bitch that she is) Can I say that here? Sure I can
Lucy (Cat) enough said.
On with the list:
1. EVERYTHING…especially when anything goes wrong with anything.
OK! I took the easy way out. That’s the way it seems to me but we all know that I am wrong so often that this is probably one of those times.
Actually it would probably be easier to make a list of the things I know for certain I am not responsible for in our family group.
Just as I thought! I can’t come up with one thing.
