Siriously? I'm Serious: Kitchen Shame

5/25/10

I feel like confessing something. And what better forum than Siriously? I'm Serious? So here's the latest edition... Kitchen Shame.


Those ridiculously cute kids are my brother and sister, Hannah and Dylan. Twins, turning 25 in June. When they were little, like in the photo, I went through an evil, bossy, I-am-the-most-important-person-in-the-world phase. We all did, right? Oh, that was just me? You lie. Anyway. One day I was making cookies, and I thought it would be HILARIOUS to play a little joke on Hannah and Dylan. So I yelled FIRE. Loudly. Because that's funny, isn't it? It's a good time when you frighten small children into thinking their house is about to burn down with them in it. Oh dear. I thought confessing this would make me feel better, make me laugh, but now I just feel terrible. Now when I look at that picture, I don't see their smiles. I only see them clinging to each other in sheer horror. I'M SORRY, BROTHER AND SISTER! I DIDN'T MEAN IT!

*So, what's your most shameful kitchen deed? Whether it be accidental, or on purpose... like poisoning someone?

Ugh I have a bad one. I made my older sister Lora a bowl of ice cream with chocolate shavings on top, which is nice except the chocolate was shaved from a bar of ex-lax chocolate flavored poo blaster. I don't remember what the "outcome" was, though I'm sure she was less than pleased with me. :-)

Siri said...

Thank you for sharing, Sara. I am laughing out loud and feeling a tad bit better about myself : )

Hannah said...

I don't remember that at all. Have I managed to block out the horrific things you've done to me in the past?? Wait, no. I remember quite a few...

Hannah said...

And Sara...that's really mean. Lora was probably SO excited that you made her a bowl of ice cream.

I wish I would have done something like that to Siri when I was little but she was really scary.

This is something my dad did to one of our neighbors. He used to go hunting and would catch pheasant. He "cooked" one up for a neighbor and gave it to her. After she ate it, he asked how it was and she said it was good. It was actually squirrel. Needless to say, she ran into the house to throw up.

When I was young, and babysitting for 2 adorable young children, I served them a bowl of fresh strawberries. In MY house, we always had a bowl of sugar on the table...these people had a bowl of salt on the table. These adorable young children told me it was sugar, so I sprinkled a generous portion over my strawberries, poured some cream over them, and took a big bite. Yeah, they thought that was pretty funny.

Sara said...

Yes, I know it is mean, but funny to the 12 year old me. :-( I also did things like ruin her Sheryl Crow - Tuesday Night Music Club CD, which she adored, by rubbing it on the wooden floor. But that's normal for sisters, right? Besides, I'm sure I got as good as I gave. She was no saint, believe me. :-)

Ok ..I was a horrible older sister..THEN...(Now I am great..:)..As the oldest of four, with a brother only 16 months younger..We once told my little sis that if there was ever a fire she was supposed to"drop and roll"..well of course the next day..we yelled FIRE!! and laughed for days about her rolling around, wrapped in a blanket on her bedroom floor...for I don't know...about an hour..

It was also my job on Sat. to make choc. chip cookies for the family..and she would wait patiently to lick the bowl..I was mad at her one day so I squirted dish soap in the bowl..(and it took her about 3 bites to figure it out.her little face has stuck with me all these years...she usually brings this one up every Thanksgiving..how I traumitized her life...But really, truly we are the best of best of friends now..The End..

I didn't do anything kitchen-wise to Molly, but I sure did torture her. Especially at Christmas time. I ruined lots of surprises and also made her think she was getting a car for her 16th birthday. Little Ingy = Little Terror.

I was on the receiving end. I asked my brother, 9 years older, if I could have some of his ice cream cone. He said "sure but I'll hold onto the cone". Stupid me leaned in for a lick and he smashed it in my face.

My oldest sister threw dog shit in my bath water. While I was in it.

StephieP said...

Wow....Ashleigh's post should make us feel like saints!!!! LOL...LOL

This is so funny! It sounds like something my brother would have done to me. The joys of being the youngest.
