I am not much active today or even watching kdramas or kvariety. I'm just doing some household chores and sitting the entire day. I didn't also want to take a nap because I'm afraid I can't fall asleep later at night. So literally speaking, I'm spending my time leisurely.
My eldest sister visited us together with her children. They stayed here for two days because they don't have electricity yet due to Tyhoon Rolly.
I am observing my nephews and nieces playing some toys when suddenly the eldest among them suggested to play something else but not everyone agreed with the suggestion. My eldest nephew becomes sulky so me, as silly tita, I add fuel to the fire and started teasing him. Saying that they don't want to play with him and blah... blah... the ending he grabbed the phone and play on it alone.
I was busily laughing, because I succeeded teasing him, when I heard my sisters talking about their children. Talking about their children's good and bad behaviour up to what are their children's doing during lockdown.
One of my sister, who I'm living with, brought out about how her children's spending their time. She said that her children loved to watched videos in Youtube specifically watching "Vlad and Niki" and "Roma and Diana". Her children started to act as them and started to speak in english too.
While listening to their conversation, a question suddenly popped up in my head.
What do I played as a kid when I am at home if my parents don't let me play outside?
I started to compare my playtime before to the playtime of my nephews and nieces. Upon thinking, I came up to this article and I'm sure many of you can relate with me.
When I was a kid, I used to imitate or act as someone whom I see as admirable or amazing. Someone who looks awesome to my eyes. And if my parents won't let me play outside I played like I am that person. I even talked to myself and imagined that I have someone with me. I am starting to build/make my own alter egos.
A Princess. This is every girls dream, to be a princess. When I was a kid, I used to watched movies about the disney princesses. Wearing beautiful gowns/dresses, with a heels and a crown or tiara, like Cinderella, Belle, Snow white, and even Princess Sarah. But opposite with wearing those beautiful dresses, I wrapped a blanket to myself and walked tiptoe 'cause we don't have high heels.
A Mermaid. Arielle in "The Little Mermaid" inspired me to be a mermaid too. Swimming freely in a deep blue sea. Talking to fishes, crabs and turtles, or even sharks, whale and octopus. But not so similar with my imagination, my tail is made up of pillow and I swim on the floor/bed instead in ocean. I waggled my tail while singing the song "Under the Sea".
A Fairy or a Godmother. Whose my inspiration to be a fairy? No other than Tinkerbell in the movie Peterpan. With a wings flying freely while the pixie dust falling. I also act as a godmother like in Cinderella, with just a snapped of the wand lies the magic within. But to be like them, my arms becomes my wings and I picked a stick to be my wand.
Not just fantasy story influenced me to be as someone else. We have this real life amazing people who I admired the most.
A doctor. Like in many television shows I watched, isn't amazing how doctors cure the illnesses? One time as I was playing I suddenly want to be a doctor and cured the fever of my paper doll. I put a very small piece of cloth to subside her fever.
A teacher. When all my siblings went to school, I am the one who left alone in the house, maybe I was 4 or 5 years old back then. I got jealous and envy them, so one time I looked at the school near my house and saw a teachers talking outside their classrooms. I was fascinated with their aura and their looks so I decided to act as a teacher when I played.
I think there are lot more of alter egos Iplayed before but I can't remember them all. The stated above was the most memorable that's why I remembered it clearly. I know I had so much fun playing when I was a kid.
