    Darjeeling, I Choose You!

    | Salo, Finland | Siblings

    (Both I and my brother are avid tea drinkers. I happened to find a neat tea ball in a shop and bought it to him as a gift.)

    Brother: “What’s this?”

    Me: “A tea ball.”

    Brother: “Oh cool. Now I can capture British Pokémon!”

    Don’t Stop Until You Pop

    | San Antonio, TX, USA | Siblings

    (I have recently bought a small, two-kid maximum bouncy house for my daughter’s birthday. It has a maximum weight limit of 250 lbs. My brother is a large guy and is asking to borrow it.)

    Brother: “I have a date tomorrow night. Can I please borrow the bouncy house? I promise we won’t pop it!”

    Me: “If you don’t pop it, you’re not doing it right!”

    They Get Double Lives

    | CA, USA | Siblings, Themed Giveaway

    (My twin and I have a few stories up on this site, and we are reading them and giggling.)

    Sister: *laughing* “God, I love us so much!”

    (Suddenly she grabs me and stares at me intensely.)

    Sister: *serious voice* “You are not allowed to die.”

    Not Quite The Immaculate Concept

    | London, England, UK | Children, Sons & Daughters

    (I am aged around six. My school likes to mix the Nativity up with another theme, such as ‘Cops and Robbers’ or the Victorian era. This year they choose ‘Under the Sea.’ This happens the afternoon I get home after being told my part.)

    Me: *very excitedly* “Mummy! I’m an octopus testicle in the school play!”

    (My mum came very close to calling up the school, before I explained my role further and she made the deduction that I was in fact an octopus TENTACLE. My siblings are still reluctant to let me live this down.)

    It Takes An Age To Remember

    | London, England, UK | Cousins

    (I’ve met my older cousin for dinner, and mentioned my birthday coming up in a couple of months.)

    Cousin: “Wait, are you 30 this year?”

    Me: “No, 29.”

    Cousin: “Phew, I thought for a horrible second I was 32 this year, but I’m only going to be 31.”

    Me: “Did you just have to check my age and then add two to remember how old you are?”

    Cousin: “Maybe…”
