If you lost/broke/misplaced a family heirloom would you: a) tell someone b) keep quiet c) find a look-alike d) do something else altogether?

I'd probably cry. And hope it was insured.

silence is golden. i live far enough away from all my family members it would never be detected. and if they do find out...lie your ass off.

If I broke it I would use a simple repair spell, i like to over pronounce each syllable-REPARO or IPICKSI if it was lost I would hold my wand out and say ACCIO plus whatever I had lost.

ACCIO HORCRUX...ACCIO ANCIENT OLD THINGY, then my boyfriend Ron would pull a face which I like to call Ron Face.

I would blame my sisters because I am the baby.

i lost my grandmother's earrings. they were just costume jewelry but had a lot of sentimental value. if my cousin hadn't made me to that irish car bomb at the wedding maybe my earring wouldn't have fallen out.

fessed up to mom and she was surprisingly understanding. she just laughed and said grandma wouldn't have cared. PHEW. i had to fess up. i can't keep quiet.

Ugh - great, thanks for reminding me. I still haven't told Mom I lost the cookbook she made for me. Tempted to blame it on an ex. The guilt is killing me... as is the not-knowing how to make the world's greatest pie crust.

Reminds me of the time that a candidate sent us some background biographical materials that included a photocopy of an article about her mom who was a holocaust survivor. After the campaign, she asked for it back because it was her only copy.

After a furious search someone here realized they asked us to forward the materials to the media firm, so it was on them for losing it.

As always, blame a media firm.

I put my great-grandmothers multi-diamond (they're small diamonds don't worry) brooch through the laundromat washing machine two weeks ago. AND lost a diamond.

Most expensive load of laundry ever.

I'll replace the diamond. And I wouldn't have a problem telling my grandmother -- she'd be happy I was wearing it instead of letting it sit safely in the back of a jewelry box.

i'd probably tell my brother or one of my sisters, but not my mom because she wouldn't react well.

Sister Ashley said...

Sister, what did you do?

Dan said...

d) blame my brother
