"Instead of Chair, Package contained long lost step-sibling."

"D- for lack of ventilation. "

A pair of long-lost Edinburgh siblings have been reunited after 30 years due to a strange coincidence that led to a family reunion.

Which promptly started a brawl and two stabbings

I was thinking something similar.

Better than finding your long lost sister at your local swingers meet.
 
2022-01-17 3:20:42 PM  
I'd like to return some siblings, but I'm not sure where to send them.

Maybe I've visited too many distorted corners of the internet, but those two look like they want to shag each other.

Yeah, I once got drunk and bought a can of luck off of eBay.

Lost it in a move years ago, and never got to open it to see what was inside. Can't imagine it was all that lucky though. $1 winning bid with free shipping. Shipping cost the seller $1.25 so they actually lost money. Not what I'd call lucky.

Why couldn't his dad sell him the program?   Why is he just meeting his sister now?

Look at the URL of the site you're on. Look at the comments above. Mystery solved.

With the things that are unexplained but with what we do know, I see two most likely options.

1)  he bought the thing, dad cancelled it with the idea he'd just give it to his kid at a meetup, pandemic happened, kid was mostly over the dad but ecstatic to have a sister.
2)  he bought the thing, dad cancelled it because he wanted nothing to do with the kid but made a comment as to why, pandemic happened, the kid eventually tracked down the rest of the family sans the dad

But yeah, there are unanswered questions, for certain.

I met my birth mom for the first time when I was 37. We get along great, have extremely similar parenting styles. Found out I have 3 step sisters. They were all welcoming, kind, and immediately accepted me. As opposed to the family I grew up with, who was offended and angry when they found out. I've always known I was adopted, it wasn't a secret. I was always told "If you ever want to find your birth mother, we'll support you all the way." My first mistake was believing they meant it.

Years on, and I still struggle with describing the relationships I gained overnight.

I read it out loud with a Scottish accent.  After that it made much more sense that it didn't make any sense.

I found a long lost sibling in a weird way.
Her tender thigh was delicious.

Given that one's from Glasgow and the other is from Edinburgh, highly likely.

By the time I met her, I had more-or-less decided not to look. I knew it could go either way--good or bad. But as it turns out, she found a post on an adoption forum I left about 15 years prior. She sat on it for 10 years until a friend of hers (who she met when she was pregnant with me) convinced her. Her friend contacted me, left a message on my voicemail that just said, "I am friends with your birth mom. If you're interested, please contact me and I can put you in touch." Having a neutral third-party was a great way to make contact. Took pressure off both of us. Luckily, it worked out great for us. Sadly, the woman who made contact with me, had the exact opposite experience with the child she gave up for adoption. Ended up having their grandchild dumped on them while her son took off to party.
