"Everyone should be able to do one card trick, tell two jokes, and recite three poems, in case they are ever trapped in an elevator."
— Lemony Snicket
Amusing but true!
Just tonight, i realised that my two little cousins, whom my mum recently decided to babysit, actually bring the family closer. Probably, a family that dines together, stays together. Haha i just made that up but i think it makes sense, really! :)
Dining together, despite having a dinning room and a dinning table and more than enough food and utensils, haven't been much of a tradition in my family. It used to be 4 persons, until my brother and i decided to eat in front of the telly instead, and until someone just left the home entirely. And then came a point when it just doesn't matter.
But lately, i realised that dinner time is spending quality time! --- Ok maybe not lately, i knew it theortically long ago, it just wasn't applicable--- I was the last to reach the table and was a tiny weeny surprised to see that the seats are filled, since normally i would be the only one sitting there most of the time (before my cousins came along). And so we talked!
I think most of us really take the fact that we have a family and home cooked food (despite how weird it taste sometimes...) and the warmth of a home for granted. Oh well. I do wish my dad was around to change the lightbulb sometimes.
