Let's join a sorority just so I can actually have sisters!!
I have two siblings. Two brothers. Two OLDER brothers.
Life gets complicated.
If my brothers are reading this, hey brothers. I love y'all. But sometimes, I wish you two were girls.
This is my list of things you will only understand if you're the only girl in the family.
1. There's no such thing as YOUR food.
I've tried everything to save my leftovers. Writing my name, writing "DO NOT EAT" on the box, even hiding the food beneath the vegetables so my brothers' wouldn't find it. You learn to get creative.
2. Friends with a boy? Nah, he's your boyfriend.
No such thing as "male friends" in my house. I'll mention a boy's name and my brothers will stop what they're doing and start listening. Very protective.
3. If they need to use the restroom, my bathroom is never safe.
All I'm saying for this one is, I keep a lot of air fresheners in my bathroom.
4. They borrow little things, for no reason
Chargers? taken. Toothpaste? taken. Pillows? taken. They have all of these things in their room, but they just choose to use mine instead.
5. You argue over who's the favorite child.
I SWEAR, my brothers' are my parents' favorite children. My brothers SWEAR that I'm the favorite child. We fight over this more than we should.
6. You're known as _____'s sister.
I've lost count how many times I've been asked if I'm related to one of my brothers. It's the last name. Also, if a teacher in high school asked, I'm not related to them, never heard of them, I'm actually an only child. Unless the teacher liked them. Even in college, (which my brothers go to different colleges than I) I will get asked if I'm related to them. HOW?!
7. You meet some very cute friends over the years.
Yeah... the "brother's best friend" crush is a real thing.
8. And you know what guys want!
Having brothers can be useful sometimes, especially when you get into a relationship. You know what to do, and what not to do. Sometimes guys just want food and to watch sports. I get it. Having two brothers really puts things into perspective.
9. They're basically like bodyguards.
Somebody messing with me? They'll watch out for me. I've had my brothers threaten guys that I've brought to our house to hang out, for no reason. So if any guy does decide to cross me, I feel bad for them already.
10. And no matter what, they're always down for a good time.
Bored? They'll go do something with you. Hungry? They'll go eat. Wanna go out? They'll get the drinks, if you're legal ;).
Brothers are crazy, but I'm right along with their craziness. Sooner or later, they start to grow on you, and I wouldn't trade them for the world.
