Twisted Sisters--Characterization


My sister sent me this pix of us sisters. . .she likes it, I don't. I was pregnant at the time, so my face just looks fat. But back to the point of this post. My husband, since marrying into this WONDERFUL family some 17 years ago, has referred to myself and my sisters as "the twisted sisters". Isn't he such a crack-up? Anyway, I got to thinking about our official name in regards to writing. What kind of little nicknames,traits, etc. can we give our characters to make THEM stand out? Make them real? Make them not only flawed, but a comical slant on things? Interesting thought, at least to me. Now to get back to writing. . .

My husband calls my mom and her sister Thelma and Louise. LOL. Just had to share.

Being an only child I sometimes wish I had a Thelma. =)

That's a great picture of you 3. That was when you were pregnant with Emily, right? We were so young back then!

Lord Rob...I didn't expect you to post this pic on your blogsite! And I do like it, very much - mostly because there are precious few pictures of the 3 of us once you advanced past the diaper-wearing stage! I don't recall you being pregnant when this was taken, but I know it was snapped the afternoon of Nana's funeral. When was that?

And you can let my fave BIL (oops, he's my only BIL!) know that I still plan on hanging his favorite pic of the TWISTED SISTERS in that nook at ceiling level right at the top of your staircase.

I LOVE the picture of you 3.......even though it was taken on a sad day - which by the way, I still have the roses handing in the spare bedroom that I dried for you 3 girls from the funeral. When would you like to have yours? And yours? And yours?

Yes, not too many photos around of you 3 together....guess we were just having too much fun to think about dragging out the camera. Hey, how bout posting the one of you 3 lying on the floor with your mouth WIDE OPEN!! Talk about a shot to live forever!
