3 in 2000: Pippa, Grant and Becca Raffel February 1, 2013 Lifestyle As told to the Campanile’s own Kian McHugh, Josefin Kenrick and Hillel Zand Pippa Raffel: I have to pee. Why do I always have to pee? Becca Raffel: You have to pee? I do too. The Campanile: Clear the air–are you guys cousins, twins, triplets or adopted siblings? BR: We’re cousins and [Grant and I] are brother and sister. TC: Who’s the biggest party animal? BR: Oh that’s Pippa… no, Grant.Grant’s at parties that are above our level. TC: Who’s the better athlete? BR: I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that we’re all equal. TC: That’s not true is it? BR: I mean you got a 2-time state champion over here. But all of the Raffels have been to CCS finals. PR: But Grant and I do participate in an individual sport, whereas Becca may depend on the other five people on the court. TC: Pippa, we hear you have a certain individual you may be fond of in The Campanile. Let’s talk about the boys. PR: I don’t think that’s a great idea. TC: Does his name rhyme with Mill Sendenhall? PR: No. TC: Any girls, Grant? Grant Raffel: No, not at this time. TC: So would you say that Pippa’s the biggest player? BR: By far. PR: I mean, look at me. TC: Pippa, tell us about when you hit Erik Anderson’s (‘13) car. PR: It was three days after I got my license and Kian was standing right there. That’s it. TC: If you guys were going to rob a bank, who would be the brains, who would be the brawn and who would be the one holding you back? BR: I would rob the bank, Pippa would be the getaway car and Grant would be like, “Guys you shouldn’t do that.” TC: Which one of you has the best fashion sense? PR: Grant is always color coordinated. I think [Becca and I] have different looks. Becca’s less preppy than I am. She goes the Uggs way, I go the loafers way. TC: If you went to an island and you could each only bring one thing, what would you bring? GR: I’d bring them. BR and PR: Awwwwww TC: Becca, would you rather be three feet taller or three feet shorter? BR: I think three feet shorter because it gets awkward when you’re that tall. I think I’m reaching the limit. TC: Do you feel that boys are intimidated by your height? BR: Absolutely. TC: What would you say to a guy trying to approach you? BR: To all those guys trying to approach me out there, just no. TC: If you could give a word of advice to any other siblings or cousins at Paly what would it be? PR: I would say that even if you don’t really like your cousins or siblings, you should try being friends with them because that’s what I did. And look at this–I’m friends with them now. GR: That’s really deep, Pippa. I’d say you always should say hello to them. BR: You never say hi to me!
