My Roomies Story!
What do you get when you grow up with 2 sisters 6 years apart from one another that are both Virgos, both type A personalities and both POLAR opposites, and must share a room? A COMPLETE DISASTER!
I loved having an older sister, don't get me wrong. I still do. She's my best friend and biggest confidant.
But when you put us both together for too long, even till this day we are bound to butt heads.
Rewind 23 years back to the year my parents realized that we could never share a room.
When I was 6 and my sister was 12 years old, we had to downsize to a smaller apt and my parents thought it would be okay to share a room. Everything that you could imagine could go wrong did. Especially when it came down to night time rituals. You see I was an avid reader since I was very young, boy did I love my library books! And at night before sleep like any bibliophile I liked to read my books! My sister one the
other hand liked to watch her TV shows with the lights off. I turned the lights on, she turned them off and this process would continue as a night time ritual for a while.
Our night time battles continued to the day time, when my sister, taking a page from some movie decided
that she was would take a long piece of tape and divide the room down in half. But what her 12 year old brain knew that my 6 year old one could not yet comprehend, was that the light switch was on HER SIDE of the room, so there went my night time reading. After laughing their butts off for a while, my parents decided enough was enough! And here came DAD to the rescue. You see all we really needed was a way for us to be both get what we wanted. So my Dad went and bought me a book light! Which for a 6 year old girl was the coolest invention ever. So my sister was able to watch her shows in the dark, and I was able to read before sleep. And I am happy to say, the line ended up coming down .
If you enjoyed my story, let me tell you a little about another roommate story!
