Who Is The Most Vivacious Member Of Your Family? (Tuesday's Question)



The first Bloggers answers are in, just click "Read More" and enjoy, that is after you join in as well...


Hello, and welcome to Tuesday's Question. This weeks Question is:

Who Is The Most Vivacious Member Of Your Family? For example, the free-spirited charmer, entertainer, dreamer...etc...(I'm trying to avoid, the words "black sheep" because it sounds so cliche' and I've never liked it.) Really, I mean the most individualistic or mischievous member...there's one in every family.

You can use the most lively family member in your immediate family, or the family you grew up in when you were a child.

The above letter is from my brothers second grade journal, and he has to be referring to me, because I am his only sister, and hislittle sister, at that. So...I think my brothers letter answers this question nicely for me, although he was probably making it up...

Anyway, since we cannot ask any of your family members you're going to have to answer this question honestly for yourself.

Who is the most vivacious member of your family?

Note: If you remember this picture it's from a post I wrote about birth order entitled, "My Sister is a Bad Little Girl."

(My brother doesn't know that I've used his letter in either post.) (Smile.)


Moving on, if you are new to Tuesday's Question please click on "Read more," for more information, meaning, I'll explain everything...(Smile)

Until then...have fun! Here's the question again,

Who Is The Most Vivacious Member Of Your Family?


Oh, and one more thing...my brother David made that letter up just to get me in trouble-

What a baby~

The first answer to this weeks Tuesday's Question is from Sandee at Comedy Plus, and it is laugh out loud funny, as well as well written.

Enjoy, and if you haven't visited Sandee's blog, I promise you'll leave smiling if you do...

Here's Sandee's answer:

I remember that note from your brother. Sibling rivalry at its finest.

The biggest pain in the behind huh. Gosh that list is so very long. Bunch of clowns in our family for sure. There's me, but I don't want to go there. Let's see...How about my cousin. Oh he was a character. The rules of physics didn't apply to him one bit.

My uncle owned a towing service which of course meant that he had lots of totaled cars in the yard. You know those places with old cars stacked everywhere. Well when my cousin was in his early teens he started rebuilding cars to drive. He did a fine job too and they were always souped up vehicles.

He outran just about every cop on the force and that gave him great pleasure. We were a small town and the cops knew where to find Billy. He got into trouble often over cars. That's not what bothered his parents of the rest of his family.

We were worried that he'd kill himself in one of those cars. He had so many car accidents that totaled out his car that we lost count. He would always just walk away from the accident. Then he'd go back to the yard and start building the next car. This went on for years.

He was so proud of his accomplishments concerning his driving and totaled cars. He always had pictures of the before and after cars. My uncle came out and towed in car after car that Billy crashed. Speed was always the issue.

Billy finally grew up some and met the love of his life and settled down to raise a family. I've often wondered if he still feels the thrill of taking some high performance vehicle through its paces. I'm betting he still does. Our family is just happy he always walked away from those horrible accidents.

What a fun question Annie. Made me relive a part of my childhood/teenage years that I thought I'd forgotten. Thanks for that.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Thanks again, Sandee~

The Next answer is from my hilarious friend, blogger, and marvelous poet, Dawn from Twisted Sister. Here's another blogger whose blog you should check out, that is, if you haven't already.

Here's Dawn's answer:

I remember the note too Annie. Brothers are real pest aren't they?

I'm gonna go with my daughter Justine. She has always been center stage since she was born. She's always saying or doing something to make me laugh. She's a bit like Phoebe on "friends" and provides me with more than enough entertainment.
Great question!
Luvs ya,
Dawn

Thank you Dawn, and luvs ya back~

The next comment is from Grace at Hugz Before You Go


Read this...


It would have to be my baby brother Skip. That he did not become an actor or a stand-up comic is a total waste of talent. He was the most beautiful baby and beautiful child and he got away with murder because of his big beautiful brown eyes. This kid oozed charm from the minute he was born. And he still can when he wants to. My father used to say that Skip and I should become lawyers and open our own firm - I would be the brains and Skip would be the mouth. He'll be 56 next week and still a mouth...

Thanks Grace~

My next commenter is Anita from Anita C. McCants, Another blogger whose blog you ought to visit, if you've never read it before. I thought it was interesting and well written.

Here's Anita's comment~

That would be me. :~)
I was the entertainer and dreamer.
I would sing, dance, and do comedy
for my family.

Thank you Anita~

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The next answer is from LaShan at A Lil Enchanted, another great blogger to visit.


Read this answer,

I would have to say in my family this character would be my oldest daughter Sarah. She is a very unique individual and you either love her or hate her... she's loud and brash and she can be hilariously funny... and sometimes majorly annoying... she has an amazing voice... and a talent for thinking fast and improvising to come up with the most off the wall funny things. She reminds me of a combination of Janis Joplin, Ozzy Osbourne, Robin Williams and Gilda Radner all rolled into one. I have told her many times that she is wasting her talent.... she needs to pursue a career in music and acting.... she would be amazing on Saturday Night Live.

A Lil Enchanted,
~LaShan~

Thank you La Shan.

Have a great week~

This is LAUGH OUT LOUD funny...Talk about trial and error, and the "rules of physics" or laws, laughing...

I'm glad you liked the question Sandee, And the following paragraph of yours is what I envisioned Tuesday's Question to be all about.

"Made me relive a part of my childhood/teenage years that I thought I'd forgotten. Thanks for that."

And again, your answer is fabulous...you've been on a roll lately. Like Dawn said last week about your other answer, I think this one would make a good post as well.

It sounds like your cousin was full of of ingenuity...(laughing) Particularly with the cops- And at least your uncle had a towing business.

Wouldn't you love to see the before and after pictures of those cars?

I'm glad he didn't get killed or badly injured too...and that he went on to get married and have a family.

I really enjoyed reading your answer. It's wonderfully paced, colorful, and funny...

Great job~

I apologize for the late reply and post. And like last week, I cannot wait for everyone to read your comment. And as always, thanks for contributing-

Have a great evening, Buddy...

Big hug and lotsa lovies back~

Dawn, I adore Phoebe, she's my favorite character.

It's wonderful to have a child that can make you laugh, isn't it? Taylor's pretty good at it too.

And I'm not at all surprised by your answer, high spirited personalities run in families. I think you're extremely funny yourself.

I would love to met Justine, although I feel like I already know her. She seems to have it all~

I'm glad you liked the question, and I apologize to you also for running late today. It's just been one of those days when I cannot catch up.

Thanks for being so loyal to Tuesday's Question, and for giving such great answers.

Luvs ya back~

Grace, Your brother sounds great...And I got a kick out of your fathers "sibling lawyers" idea. Laughing...

It sounds like charm and a sense of humor run in the family~

Thank you Grace,

LaShan, I cannot imagine,

"combination of Janis Joplin, Ozzy Osbourne, Robin Williams and Gilda Radner all rolled into one."

She has got to be hilarious. Thanks for participating in Tuesday's Question, and making me laugh.

Oh Annie I have spent the last couple of days fighting off a cold and missed this week's question.

Oh Pooh on me and yes everyone is correct about Sandee. She has been a real hoot lately.

I love everyone's answers. Can I still answer?

Without a doubt it is Chase my four year old grandson. He was the first to come along after a nine year gap.

Please don;t get me wrong. I love him dearly but he is a terror. First of all he is border line genius for his age. He prefers to spend his play time and quiet time on the computer. He has mastered just about every game there is on Pogo and he's only four.

Now I am very grateful that he has been blessed with a very high level of intelligence. But, let me tell you that this is also a big big problem and has been since he was a toddler.

He can get into or out of just about anything. He is very strong willed, determined and stubborn. He will have his way or die trying unless he kills you first.

His energy level is somewhere around the speed of light. I warned Tammy not to name him Chase. But, she did and now that's everyone's job all the time.

Everyone is always chasing after Chase to keep him from starting up lawn mowers, trying to drive, attempting the practice of medicine without a license on his baby brother Jonah, and just about anything you can imagine.

His nick name between all of us is 'Oh master of the universe.' And in his eyes he truly thinks he is.

Thank goodness he started Pre K this year. We are all hoping he will learn that other people do have some rights other than himself.

But, to be honest with you, I have my doubts. He will either be the first child to get suspended from the school or he will be teaching the class.

Yes in this family, Chase is everyone's nightmare but also everyone loves him dearly. He is also very very cute with huge blue eyes. When he turns on the charm all of our hearts simply melt.

By the way, the youngest baby is named Jonah. Chase is the only one out of the four that was not named after someone in the bible.

That's my story. I am sorry to be so late. But, I just love doing Tuesday's question.

I hope you have a great night!
Big hugs,
Jackie;-)

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Courage-

Humor


Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
