In many ways I am a blithering idiot. But I pride myslef in knowing people.
I am so socially awkward that I've just had to learn how other people work, and how
they react to things
So I'm using this to play a practical joke on a friend xD
My friend Nate insists that my sister an I look almost exactly the same.
- My sister has my grandfathers nose. She is very proud that she has a black person
nose. (Her term, not mine.) She has dark brown hair, brown eyes, full lips, chisled
chin, straight hair, she's always tan... Not to mention that she's one of those lucky
saps who never gains weight. (My sister is really pretty.)
- On the other hand, I can't seem to drop below 115 pounds no matter how much I
exercise, I'm paler than some of my Irish friends, curly blonde hair, round face, and
if any of you have seen photos of me, you'll know that I do not have the nose of an
Maggie and I both resent Nathan saying we look exactly alike. He een did it today in
I sent him a message saying something very closely along the lines of the following
(I can't copy the original until he responds.)
"Subject: Family resembalance
Hey Nathan, I'm sooo glad this came up today since it's the end of the years anyway.
Surprise! Maggie and I aren't actually related. We volunteered for a year long
pschology experiment, because we live on the same street and have the same last name.
There's a girl in our grade Jackie who has the same last name too, but she doesn't
live around here and I don't know her that well. Maggie and I were just perfect.
The hypothesis is essentially that if a person is led to beleive that two teens are
related, they will insist that they see a resembalance regardless of whether one is
actually there. You were part of the minorty who proved in correct. (Nice going xD)
Maggies' parents are listed on my profile, but I didn't want link to their profiles
just in case. (It was just to keep a decent backstory.)
So do you still think we look the same? :p"
I bribed my sister with $20 to play along, my best friend is in on it now, and I got
Nathans' older sister (she was friends with Maggie before me) to promise that if he
questioned her she would say that she thought Maggie was an only child, but
appearntly she was wrong.
Nathan tends to rely on facts given to him by others, and Maggie and my behavior is
coherent with what I told him. Once my three co conspritors do their parts Nathan
will admit to our dissimilarity!!
P.S I hope everyone does Day of Silence
