Who has the uncanny ability to both irritate and totally “get” you, often at the same time? Your sister, of course! Here are the things you’ll definitely identify with if you have a sweet, sassy, and sometimes sinister sis.
Younger sisters always wanted to tag along with their older sisters
For younger sisters, your older sib was the coolest, and you always wanted to come along with her and her friends (often much to her annoyance). You were like a little puppy dog, but unfortunately, your older sister probably wanted her own space—although she probably bestowed the privilege of letting you tag along once in a while.
Plus now that you’re older, her friends are your friends
Someone else who knows how cool your sister is?! As long as they’re good enough for her, they’ve got an instant “in” when it comes to your friend list. Even if all of your friends are busy, your sister probably has a few who’d love to hang out. What can we say? Sisters share pretty much everything.
You did things just to annoy her, for no particular reason
If you have a sister, especially if you were the older one, you know you bothered her for no reason whatsoever when you were young. Maybe it was sibling rivalry, or repressed anger that she took away your parents’ undivided attention. “I remember once my older sister kept poking her finger in my face,” one little sis says. “After repeatedly asking her to stop, which she ignored, I promptly chomped down on her finger! No wonder she called me ‘alligator teeth.’” Not BFFs with your sis? It’s never too late to have a good relationship with your sibling.
