|Ten year old Little man!… sideways because I’m way to lazy to figure out how to rotate it.|
When I tell you I have the coolest siblings in the entire universe I am being completely, honestly, un-biased-ly, one hundred percent literal. First of all my youngest brother ( commonly known as “lil man” – yes that is a Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry reference for all ye bookies) just turned ten today. He is all excited and ready to join the double digits club with a science textbook and robot building kit in hand. Yes, he knows more about advanced mathematics then I do, and is probably more familiar with the periodic table then most college graduates. Probably. It’s nice to have a little brother who can double as a chemistry tutor… at least it is usually nice.
Shout outs to a preciously darling little brother:
Last year I bought him toilet bowl cleaner for his birthday. You think I’m crazy? It is what he really wanted and ( being a lil low on the cash ) I didn’t argue. We turned it into a bomb. You see my mom buys this healthy natural alternative heresy called seventh generation. It may be great for your lungs and kidneys, it may be great for our lovely ozone layer, but it sure stinks at exploding. So I bought him a huge can of non-natural (supernatural?), chemical filled, environmentally detrimental substance. We made an epic water bottle bomb that exploded so loud the neighbors probably thought hunting season had started early. Thank goodness nobody called the police, gun shots aren’t cataclysmic in my neck of the woods. ( at least in the good o’le country we used to live in ).
So I racked my brain to figure out what to do with my lil bro this year. My pockets are still a little shallow ( surprise surprise), and I obviously can’t beat the toilet bowl cleaner so…
We worked on a project from my Pinterest board labeled “things to do with lil bro”. Just the fact that I have such a board should be a good enough birthday present right?
We made Jello oranges:
Didn’t I mention something about my siblings being the coolest in this entire galactic supercluster? Something like that. Well yeah, my younger sister took it upon herself to make little man the coolest birthday present in the history of ever. With an empty budget and an excess of creativity she walked outside, picked up a stick, walked back inside, picked up some duck tap, preformed a little bit o magic and handed little man a: homemade, super cool looking, fully-functioning bow and arrow!
Yah. My siblings are amazing. I’m still overwhelmed.

Oh and I’ve finally solved that all important universal question: If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring two things… what would it be?… The easy answer:
My younger sister and duck tape. Seriously, her skills with that stuff are creepily magical.
