My observations of the day

Yesterday, we had two kids at our place. They're sisters and stay on the first floor as our tenants. For as long as I could remember, I was always told that the elder sibling always is very considerate and nice while the younger one is more pampered and hence is a little difficult. But you know what? I think that's pure bollocks!

The elder one was very pushy, tried to boss her sister around, got on my nerves, being extremely spoilt and twisted her words around just to get away with bad behavior. And surprisingly, the younger one was sweeter, kinder and always seemed to think of her sister when asked if she wanted something to eat or do something fun; a trait that was absent in the elder one, who always tried to isolate her younger sister from games or other activities. This just goes out to prove that being kind is not circumstantial. It comes from within irrespective of what the circumstances are. You could be rich or poor, pampered or abused, but to be kind or not to be does not depend on these things.

One of my dictums

And so, if you're one of those people who's nice out of choice, power to you! :D
