One thing I love about my sister is that she is optimistic, creative, and all around brilliant. I have the feeling that one of the worst things that could happen to our household growing up was a bored little kid me…especially when Janine was in charge of me. Somewhere along the line, Janine, or Janine and I figured out how to harness my rapid mind energy and improvisational skills into an entertaining activity for Janine, and a challenge for me.
Here’s how it would go.
Janine would turn on the radio by tweaking my nose. I’d come up with the first channel I could think of and I’d keep coming up with content until the next nose tweak point, where Janine would either be irritated or bored with the content. A usual run would go for a few minutes, when we’d lose it with laughter or when I ran out of content.
I’m still amazed at the brilliant things Janine came up with. The radio game is definitely one of my favorites, though it tires me out a bit. 🙂
Well played, Janine.
