Back when my brother lived in Arizona with me (he’s since gone into the Navy so he’s lived in several other places) we were really close.We are almost exactly 3 and a half years apart, so we get along really well.Oh and yes, we fought when we were younger.I remember getting him in trouble for using his “karate” moves on me. I also remember putting makeup on him and pinning hair bows in his hair.My dad definitely didn’t like that, let me tell you! Whoops, that was way off topic.
Anyways, since we were so close, we obviously hung out a lot.Apparently, we were so close that people thought we were in a relationship.Say what?!?People were so used to siblings kind of hating each other, that to see a pair that was so close and that actually liked each other, they went straight to coupledom. I mean it’s not like we walked around holding hands and hugging. Ew, it just weirds me ou
t thinking about it. Needless to say, it made for some really awkward moments!
The most awkward moment happened when we were in a grocery store.I was being an awesome older sister and buying some adult beverages for my slightly younger brother so we were keeping our transactions separate.Another line looked like it was clearing faster so he hopped over to that line.Then, the line I was in ended up moving faster.So, the lady who was in line behind me says “Would your fiancé like to come back over to this line?” Ok what?Fiancé?I wasn’t wearing any rings, so I have no clue where she got that.Who starts with that?I mean she could have said friend.Or maybe boyfriend if that was the route she was going.But fiancé?? It was nice of her to ask and I didn’t feel it was necessary to explain that he was my brother, so I just replied “No, it’s ok.”
We proceeded to buy our groceries in our separate lines and he came over by me when he was done.I guess I should have explained to her that he was just my brother, because as we were walking away she made sure to let us know that we were a “really cute couple.”
So yeah, my brother and I make a really cute couple.Lucky us.
Has anyone has to deal with weird sibling situations like this?!?
