    Getting Your Buzz On

    | Denver, CO, USA | Siblings

    (My family, my fiancé, and I are playing Buzz Word, which is a game in which you have to come up with sayings or phrases using a specific word based of clues on the card. The word is ‘Get’).

    Step-Mom: *reading a clue from the card* “Dating agenda.”

    Younger Brother: “Get some!”

    (We had to stop playing for several minutes because everyone was laughing so hard.)

    A Catalog Of Errors

    | Norway | Grandparents, Parents & Guardians, Siblings

    (My father, half-brother and I are visiting my paternal grandparents. My grandmother knows my mom doesn’t have a lot of money to spare, so she often hands me mail order catalogs to look for clothes in, which she’ll sometimes order. My brother, being five years younger than me, wants to do everything his older sister does.)

    Brother: “Hey, are you done? I want to read, too.”

    Me: “Sure.”

    (I hand him the catalog and pick up another one. After a while, my brother looks at me.)

    Brother: “Hey, big sis, what are these?”

    (He shows me the page he’s on. Half of it has pictures of different sex toys, along with short descriptions.)

    Me: *thinking quickly* “Ask Dad.”

    Brother: “Dad, what are these?”

    (Our dad, being open about this stuff, launches into a correct, but child appropriate, explanation. My brother listens, occasionally looking at the page. Our grandmother listens in horror.)

    Grandmother: “I did not realize [Company] put these things in their catalogs!”

    Me: “I think they have for a while? I’ve noticed before, but I haven’t thought about it.”

    Brother: *is silent for a moment after our dad’s explanation, then reads out loud* “Rotating and vibrating…”

    (My father, grandfather, and I broke into laughter, while my grandmother looked even more horrified.)

    The Mother Of All Awkward Situations

    | Mobile, AL, USA | Parents & Guardians, Siblings

    (I am out shopping with my mom and sister. My sister is a waitress and gets most of her money in small bills. We start to check out and my sister pulls out her wallet and starts counting out over two hundred dollars in one and five dollar bills.)

    Sister: “Sorry this is taking so long, I’m a waitress and this is how I get paid.”

    Mom: “That’s just her story. She’s really a stripper. A really good one.”

    No, That Was Freud

    | Estonia | Siblings

    (My family is playing a trivia game.)

    Me: *reading from a card* “What did Archimedes discover in his bath?”

    Sister: “His penis.”

    Tried And Failed

    | KS, USA | Parents & Guardians, Siblings

    (My sisters and I are having an argument about which sibling is the best. I’m the sixth and last one born.)

    Father: *wandering in to the room while we’re arguing*

    First Sister: “When Mom and Dad had me, it was perfection. I got all the good stuff. The rest of you are inferior versions made from the leftovers.”

    Me: “No way. They tried five times before finally getting the one the really wanted.”

    Father: *leaving the room* “We tried a heck of a lot more times than that. Hehehe.”

    All Sisters & Me: *BLUSH*
