    Love Can Be Sickening

    | Australia | Siblings

    (My sister and I downright hated each other as kids, but in the years since I’ve moved very far away, we’ve started talking more. One I was having an emotional crisis and she offered a listening ear. This happens as the conversation is drawing to a close.)

    Sister: “Look, you know what you need to do. I’m sorry I have to go now, but I love you.”

    Me: “Blergh!”

    Sister: *laughs* “Bye bye!”

    (About an hour later, I’ve resolved a few things and I call her back to tell her.)

    Sister: “Hello?”

    Me: “I have news, but first of all… this is really hard for me, but… I love you, too. Egh! Yuck! I’m never saying that again.”

    Sister: *giggles* “Okay, what’s the news?”

    Go With Definition Number Two

    | TN, USA | Siblings

    (My 18-year-old brother and I are at home one evening when we have one of our odd, random conversations.)

    Brother: “Hey, sis, what does ‘endure’ mean? Does it mean to tough something out?”

    Me: “Not exactly. It’s more like having to bear something.”

    Brother: “Okay, for example, I have to poop. Does that mean I’m enduring my poop?”

    Me: “Not exactly. You’re withholding your poop. It would be more accurate to say that you are enduring the sensation of having to poop.”

    Brother: “Cool… I’ll be right back.”

    (Then he ran off to the bathroom.)

    The ‘Squee’ing Dead

    | USA | Parents & Guardians, Siblings

    (I’m watching the newest episode of a popular zombie-themed television show with my mom and sister. After several episodes of separation, the fan-preferred couple are finally reunited again and hug each other.)

    Me: “Woah! Did you hear that?”

    Mom: “Hear what?”

    Me: Oh, you can’t tell me you didn’t hear that! I think everyone around the world just heard that!”

    Sister: “Oh! I think I heard it! It was like a high pitched ‘squeeee,’ right?”

    Me: “Fangirls all over the world just squee’d all at the same time!”

    (Suddenly there’s a pop in the street from some kids playing with firecrackers.)

    Mom: “Well, I didn’t hear the squee, but it sounds like someone’s ovaries are exploding.”

    The Kick Is The Kicker

    | Canada | Cousins, Siblings

    (I’m playing basement hide-and-seek in the dark with my cousins and my brother. Everyone has been found except for me. This is what I hear from my hiding spot:)

    Cousin: “Where is she? I feel like she’s hiding somewhere in this pile.”

    Brother: “So kick it until she comes out.”

    Cousin: “That’s a terrible thing to do!” *pauses* “I say, as I do it anyway…”

    A Cheap Shot At Dad

    | USA | Parents & Guardians, Siblings

    (I am five and my sister eight. We’re watching a commercial for a car dealership.)

    Commercial: “Come to [Name]‘s Auto Dealership, the cheapest guy in town!”

    Sister: “Nuh-uh, dad’s the cheapest guy in town, not [Name]!”

    Me: “Yeah!”

    Mom: *laughs her head off*

    (I told my dad later about it, and he wasn’t as amused.)
