So my sister finally found me…
I’ve had the same email address for at least 10 years.Â And most of my family and a few friends in France have that email address.Â So I was quite amazed to find a comment on my blog from my sister telling me about our grandmother passing away.
Since I have her 10 year old son on my msn contact list – he added my daughter and I ages ago, I left her an offline message saying that she had my contact details all along ( I should have asked her how she found my blog though…)
But she started to chat on msn so I showed myself online and as I soon as I did that she did a video call!!!
I sometimes use my webcam on msn but never actually did a video call, I use Skype for that.Â Not only she did not have a headset but the sound quality was terrible and my sound kept muting itself for some strange reasons… then here she is looking atÂ us – by then I had called my children to join in… so she is looking at us like we are aliens or something… or maybe she was just looking at that pimple on my face, who knows! And then she says “well don’t you have anything to say?!”
The thing is: “No I don’t have anything to say”.Â It is sad but true. She might be my sister but I don’t know her. Even her voice was different from what I could remember, I have not talked to her for at least 10 years. I don’t know her husband.Â I don’t know her kids.Â I don’t know her as a mother and wife.Â And i did not feel comfortable in talking to her.
The saddest part is that I still don’t feel the need to know her. I don’t know why.
