In celebration of my little sister Georgie’s birthday yesterday, I decided for today that I’d dedicate a post to everyone that has sisters; because everyone loves a relatable sibling post!
George and I are the best of friends, very similar in a lot of ways, but completely different in others. I always describe her as a more extreme version of me to people that haven’t met her before, so when they do eventually cross paths they completely understand what I mean. She’s a MAJOR party girl, whereas I’m more about a night in front of the telly with a curry and Netflix. We don’t look as much alike now as we did when we were younger, but you can still tell we’re sisters, I’ve put in a couple of old snaps to show you what I mean;
As we got older, found our “personal style” and grew into the women we are today, we’re pretty different!
Anyway, back to the subject of this post! Here’s a list of things you’ll know if you have a sister;
You talk to each other in different accents
I don’t know if this is due to our American roots, but George and I always revert back to our accents when we talk to each other – we also like to put on other accents when we’re being a pair of twats, which I think a lot of people will relate to.
You expose embarrassing things about each other
George was actually the person that got Aaron and I together when we were 15 (she basically lied to us both and told us we both said we fancied each other when we hadn’t – before social media was as huge as it is today 11 years ago) and LOVES to tell everyone about how I put a face full of makeup on to strut up the street to where they were playing football and pretend I didn’t know Aaron would be there – EXPOSED!
Stealing the other one’s shit – standard
George and I always had a rule when it came to clothes, shoes, accessories etc. THE OWNER OF SAID ITEM MUST WEAR IT TEN TIMES BEFORE THE OTHER CAN BORROW. What a pile of shit that rule was, I would always abide by the rules when George would rummage through my shit when I was out before rocking a brand new top I hadn’t worn ten times.
Screaming bloody murder at each other for stealing said shit
I think we can all relate to this, no?
You soon forget about the screaming and have a girly night with face masks, junk food and rom-coms
We love to have a girly night in watching There’s Something About Mary with homemade nachos, face masks and a good gossip!
One of you will not drive/have access to a car and call the other one like they’re a taxi service
George can’t drive, so I’m said taxi service. The latest trip was a Saturday morning when she woke up late for work, so she called her beloved sister to come and get her to take her in. I’d like to say this is an isolated occasion, but I’d be lying.
Getting really irritated by their face, voice and behaviour
We regularly piss each other off; she’s SO LOUD which pisses me off sometimes and I annoy her when I (unintentionally) bite my fork when I eat. She hangs up the phone on me ALL THE TIME, whilst I insist on getting pictures for the ‘gram which she says is “extra”. Her phone voice winds me up and my high pitched voice I get when I’m annoyed goes straight through her. There are so many things that we get annoyed about which sound so ridiculous and equally hilarious when you read about them – but that’s what sisters are like!
So if you’ve got a sister that you love with all of your heart, but could also 100% stab at times, let me know about some of the things you know in the comments below!
Shout out to the greatest sister in the world – I love you loads SISTERRRRR!!! ❤️❤️
