On Being The Youngest.

Extracts from this document...


On Being The Youngest "I hate being the baby!" That's a common statement one hears all too often. I'm the youngest one in my family,and the only girl among two brothers at that. Quite a number of my friends are the eldest among their siblings, and from what I've heard from them, their little sisters and brothers are probably just a few years away from the friendly neighbourhood psychiatrist. What with all the abuse, it's a miracle how they avoid becoming physically and emotionally retarded. ( sorry guys, I just had to stand up for those poor kids!).

While both my brothers are lean, slim and thin, I've always been kind of chubby my whole life.The last cookie left? Let your sis have it lar. The last piece of pizza? Give your sis... All this food stuffing has left its mark on me physically. (Sigh) Well, I guess you just can't have your cake and eat it too...literally. All in all, I think life was intended to be a bed of roses for us young ones. Unfortunately though, a few durian husks got in the mix.

    I used a lot of New York slang such as 'jug' rather than 'jail' and often only said the first letter of each word.
