    | Des Moines, IA, USA | Siblings

    (My brother and I, who are six years apart in age, are seated together on a sky-lift at an amusement park while one vacation. A couple of teenagers–boy and girl cuddling–pass us going the other way. The teenage boy gives me a ‘bro nod’, followed by a thumbs-up.)

    Me: “Did you see that? That guy just gave you a thumbs-up.”

    Brother: “What? Why?”

    Me: “I think he thought we were together.”

    Brother: “No way.”

    Me: “I don’t know whether to be creeped out because he thought we’re dating, or flattered because I’m a thumbs-up.”
