A workmate of mine is a young girl from Samoa. Her family relocated to New Zealand when she was 9, so being 19 years old now she still considers and calls herself Samoan, rather than a Kiwi - from New Zealand.
But I digress.
The reason I'm writing about her is that when I mentioned to her that I have one sibling - an older brother - she asked, "Only one?" Yes, I answered, but why? How many do you have?
Nine. She comes from a family of ten children.
And where it got even more interesting is the fact that her mom comes from a family of thirteen children (!) and each of her mom's siblings also has at least ten children, so this 19-year-old girl from Samoa has over 130 cousins. And that's on her mother's side of family alone!
On my mother's side of family, there are six of us - six cousins. This girl, on the other hand, has over 130 of them.
One. Hundred. And. Thirty.
