The walk in the park became a contest.

My sister plus I are twins, plus everything we do ends up being a contest.

  • It doesn’t matter if we are playing a game or just doing dishes, someone has to bet the other they can do the task better.

After Thanksgiving supper, our mother asked us to go for a walk in the park with her. She wanted to get some calories walked off that she had consumed. While we were walking, we both forgot about Dad plus started power walking, then we jogged, plus it quickly became a full race. I’m not sure who was going to be the winner, however Dad offered a shout plus we both stopped, almost falling on our faces. Dad wasn’t very cheerful with our actions. You would have thought we were only 6 again the way she pulled our ears plus told us she had enough plus quickly headed back to the house. She sat in front of the fireplace plus told us that all they acquired was the right to do the dishes. She plus dad were curled in front of the fireplace enjoying the first of many Christmas films. The kitchen was hot, since the heat of the fireplace was blowing right through the doorway. I heard Dad mumble something about our race, plus dad started chuckling. She came out plus slapped us both on the back. She said that we would never learn. It quickly hit us that every year our shenanigans had ended up with us doing the holiday dishes, while Dad sat in front of the fireplace enjoying aged films.
