    Getting Crabby With The Injury

    | USA | Siblings

    (I’m sitting in the living room, and my little sister is on the other side of the room.)

    Sister: “I have a crab on my leg.”

    Me: “You have a… crab on your leg?”

    Sister: “Yeah.” *she points to the back of her leg* “Right there.”

    Me: “A crab?”

    Sister: “Yeah.”

    Me: “You mean a SCRAPE?”

    Sister: “It WAS a scrape.”

    Me: *realizes* “Ohhhh. You have a SCAB on your leg.”

    Sister: “Yeah, I have a scab.”

    The Odds Are Not In Your Favor

    | IN, USA | Siblings

    (My sister and I are watching ‘The Hunger Games,’ I am 22 and she is 14. I am also on my computer writing.)

    Sister: “[My Name], would you Volunteer as tribute for me?”

    Me: *without hesitation* “Nope.”

    Sister: “What?!”

    My Vietipino History

    | St. Louis, MO, USA | Parents & Guardians, Siblings

    (My mom is trying to tell us about our grandpa and what he was doing during WWII.)

    Mom: “Your grandpa was in the Philippines working on the Ho Chi Minh trail.”

    (At this point, my sister and I give each other smiles.)

    Sister: “Good morning, Vietnam!”

    The Cold Future

    | Allentown, PA, USA | Siblings

    (I find my sister’s journal and being a typical sister, I decide to crack it open to a random page and read something out of it. This is what I found.)

    Entry #1: “Dear Future Self, what is it like in the future? Do we have flying cars and hoverboards and stuff yet?”

    Entry #2 *there is a timestamp labeling it two minutes later* “Dear Past Self, sorry, but we don’t have flying cars and hoverboards yet. We do however have a popsicle we didn’t have two minutes in the past!”

    Taking Distraction Action

    | Dubuque, IA, USA | Siblings

    (My sister lost her wallet earlier, and is understandably upset. I’m taking her to go look for it, and offer to buy her a taco to help calm her down. On the road again, I reach in the bag for one of my burritos, and pull out her taco. I look over at her.)

    Me: “[Sister]! You’re eating my burrito!”

    Sister: *looks down and realizes she has in fact eaten half my burrito* “I didn’t notice!”

    Me: “How can you not notice that! It’s completely different from a taco!”

    Sister: “I have no idea.”

    (We did find her wallet later, and she apologized again for eating most of my burrito, saying that she was a little distracted at the time!)

    Tabling That Argument

    | ON, Canada | Siblings

    (Four of us go to a restaurant. My sister goes to find a seat while we get food. We find her at a weird spot… in the middle of everything with other tables attached.)

    Me: “Why did you pick this spot? There are other empty seats everywhere else.”

    Sister: “I looked at it; it looked at me… We fell in love. That’s why we are here.”

    Me: “…How does a table look at you?”

    Sister: “I never said it looked at me. I said, ‘I looked at it; it looked at…’ Damn it.”
