So my mother has a post about siblings over on her blog. So I thought I would tell a sibling story. This one is about Earl. He has said some really funny things over the years. This one is from when we were teenagers.
When I was about 17, (that would make Earl 14) my mother and I were on a squash kick. We would make a new one every night. Then at the dinner table we would go on and on about how good it was. Well, the night before, we had had a spaghetti squash. This night, we had gotten a squash called a sweet mama. So we were going on and on about it. Finally he threw down his fork and in frustration said, “Sweet Mama, Big Eddie, what are they going to come up with next, Little Al?” We both looked at each other and burst into laughter. He didn’t understand that it was a spaghetti squash, not a “Big Eddie” squash.
So if you notice, in my title of my blog, I have that saying. It’s been a favorite in my life and I’ve laughed about it over the years.
Question of the day: Do you have a funny sibling story?
