I was thinking about the upcoming Thanksgiving day, it made me recall some funny times. I was actually laughing about some of the amusing wishes made on those turkey wishbones.
Autumn and I being the oldest and being twins, we started out with the wishes made. We never really had an argument over the wishbone. Over who won by getting the largest piece when pulled and got to make their wish, we kind of took it all in stride. Well, because secretly we had more belief in wishes made on birthday candles! We were kind of strange that way, I remember having that discussion as young twinnies.
We might make a wish on a turkey wishbone, but didn’t put much stock in those wishes. On to the next sisters, they were 4 and 51/2 years younger than Autumn and I. Those two sisters used to clash over many things…Maybe it started with the wishbone tradition. Who knows? Happily they get along very well now that they’re grown up We will call them L (the older one) and T (the younger one).I must not give out their names, since they wouldn’t appreciate this tale being told.
This one year it was their turn to pull the turkey wishone, and it really did get kind of ugly pretty fast. Those two middle sisters took their wishes quite seriously, the poor delusional girls. Anyway, the youngest sister T won and sister L just lost it. Stomping and throwing a fit, sister L who lost carried on about the whole deal…She was not a happy camper. Must have had a heavy-duty wish in mind?
All that sticks in my mind, was the huffing to the door and tossing her wishbone piece. For real, sister L did that! Then she proceeded to tell T that her wish would not come true, because said wishbone was gone. Well, thankfully Dad and Mom got them settled down. They were now just down to muttering a few nasty things between each other. I am ashamed to say Autumn and I were just laughing ourselves quite silly over the whole deal. We really couldn’t help it, you maybe had to be there to appreciate the humor. To us twinnies, how ridiculous causing such an uproar over a silly wishbone.
The next two sisters that came along didn’t ever get all upset over the silly wishbone tradition. Well, maybe because Autumn and I had those two girls hip to the fact that birthday candle wishes were more important. What a funny memory that one Thanksgiving is.
I have to remember to tell Autumn no teasing the two middle sisters this year, they both still get a bit touchy over this story! 😉
