This’ll be brief, since my mom, sister, and three darling nieces are currently visiting from Oregon.
Tonight round the dinner table the adults howled with laughter collab-ing on the fun #threefictionalcharacters thing that’s trending on social media. One selects three fictional characters who most closely mirror their personality. It’s harder than it sounds.
My much older sister: Dory, Deb from Napoleon Dynamite, & Ally Sheedy’s character in The Breakfast club
Mi madre: Glenda the Good Witch, Barbie from Toy Story, & Kevin Macallister’s mom in Home Alone
Handsome Husband: Jason Bourne, the grumpy old man from Up, & Dexter the mad scientist brainiac
Firstborn: Dr. Dolittle, Hermione Granger, & Merida
Center Sister: Madison from Splash, Kirsten Dunst’s Marie Antoinette, & Tinkerbell
Yours Truly: Monica Geller, Molly Weasley, Cheri Oteri’s Spartan cheerleader
Honorable mention Lucy van Pelt for mom, firstborn, and m’self.
