One Brother For Sale

15 Apr

OJ: I stepped on a mouse, I stepped on a mouse!

Brother: Did you apologize?

OJ: It screeched and scuttled off and I screeched louder and scuttled off faster.

Brother: Oh, it’s the old story then.

OJ: Which one?

Brother: The Mouse and the Elephant.

Wait, I change my mind. Take him for FREE. I’ll even throw in a pair of Rayban Aviators.

Hurry! Offer open until patience lasts.

    I could do with one. Is he good for housework? Or could he at least look after my soon-to-be-brought-home dogs while I’m away. Lots of treats will be given, and all-day-TV too.

    We can exchange 😀

    No one seems to want mine for free.
    hows about a budding little 15 year old sound?

    Pallavi: Hon, all he needs is a broadband connection and to be left alone. And the question he’ll be asking is are you good for housework?

    Serendipity: *OJ screeches even louder and scuttles off even faster*

    you could try a limited edition free download link.

    OR we could try and come up with anti-errant-sibling cream. in a very small, camouflaged tube. with ‘adjustable consequences’ settings.

    ooh. im hopeless.

    Aarrgghh! He sounds a lot like my brother!!!
    Try Craig’s List, God knows stranger things have switched hands there 😉

    ah ha.. he has humor in him…will take him, definately.

    Someone who needs is a broadband connection and to be left alone? And who’ll be asking me if I’m good for housework??

    No thanks. My husband does all that for me.

    Maybe I’ll just get the pups to help me around with the chores 😛

    Hehehe! Wanna trade?

    Mine’s a 28 year-old rock-star wannabe.

    An elephant and a mouse
    With a brother in the house
    Make interesting company
    And give bloggers teeheeglee
    Ask anyone with a brother-less grouse!

    I have always wanted a brother. But, post your description,……………… i’ll take the Aviators. Thank you.

  11. Nino's Mum April 16, 2009 at 12:11 pm #

    hahaha 🙂
    he sounds adorable. seriously. As you can see, I’ve always craved having a male sibling. Always assumed that way their race would make so much more sense to me.

  12. maidinmalaysia April 16, 2009 at 1:09 pm #

    yes, but does he have a blog?

    sounds like a rather droll chappie

  13. D April 16, 2009 at 2:06 pm #

    Lol! I’m going to be putting up my sister for adoption next.

  14. dipali April 16, 2009 at 6:30 pm #

    Awesome brother/ post!
    Choose whichever option you prefer:)

  15. DewdropDream April 16, 2009 at 10:39 pm #

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Sure you can exchange. Send him to my place and you can have me instead. I promise I shall be the worshipping younger sister 😀

    errormsg: I’m listening…go on…

    wordjunkie: I sold my entire Boston apartment on Craigslist, so yes, I vouch for its efficacy. One brother, coming right up!

    sukanya: Deal. He’s yours.

    Pallavi: Honeybunch, why would he be up for sale if he were actually any use? Anyhoo, he’s gone now. Sukanya’s very kindly taking him off my hands.

    M4: No swapping! Nevah!

    Aunty G: Oh dear lord
    They must all be bored
    And to them I say
    they won’t make it one day
    if a brother they want to hoard.

    In love with my life: They come with the brother. As an incentive. No brother, no aviators.

    Nino’s Mum: Men? They’re the simplest species to understand! 😕

    maidinmalaysia: Is too. I am not aware of any blogging (and other nefarious) activities.

    D: Get in line! My brother goes first!

    dipali: Bah. 😡 All you people laughing at my sorry life, bah!

    DewdropDream: I’m not looking for an exchange! If I were, I’d have picked up another baby at the hospital. But they didn’t let me. And I had to come home with a monkey-faced creature who grew up to look exactly like my dad!

  17. DewdropDream April 17, 2009 at 4:40 pm #

    Aw shucks. There goes my chance 😀

  18. Orange Jammies April 17, 2009 at 10:26 pm #

    DewdropDream: 😕 This is a first. Nobody’s ever applied for the position before.

  19. CrazyDiamond April 18, 2009 at 11:33 am #

    tch tch tch
    Although I giggled muchly.

  20. Orange Jammies April 20, 2009 at 11:14 pm #

    CrazyDiamond: Such fake sympathy. Sigh. 😦

  21. twisteddna April 21, 2009 at 1:21 pm #


    Poor mouse. Sorry! Poor brother! Sorry I am confused, who should I be sympathizing with here?

  22. DewdropDream April 21, 2009 at 7:01 pm #

    So does that gladden you or horrify you?

  23. Orange Jammies April 21, 2009 at 10:29 pm #

    twisteddna: 😡 ME! I’m rodent-phobic, remember?

    DewdropDream: I’m uncertain. Perhaps I should be flattered. But wait…you’re hoping to borrow my Bottega, aren’t you? 👿

  24. DewdropDream April 21, 2009 at 10:45 pm #

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! While that is certainly tempting, I haven’t yet reached the stage where I feel the need to buy/flaunt expensive handbags… I might ask to dip into your library though 😀

  25. Orange Jammies April 21, 2009 at 10:56 pm #

    DewdropDream: Okay, that helped me decide. NO SISTERS NEEDED. *Nails in signboard and walks off dusting hands* 😛

  26. DewdropDream April 22, 2009 at 5:26 am #

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaatttttt!!! Nooooooooooooooooooooo!!! Come back come back!!! 😀 😛

  27. Orange Jammies April 24, 2009 at 9:13 am #

    DewdropDream: 😛

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
