Why Having a(n Older) Brother Is the Best

November 18, 2017

I obviously write about my sister a lot, but surprise, I have a brother!
And I'm always seeing posts about the importance of sisterhood and how great it is to have clothes to steal, but I feel like somebody needs to point out how great it is having a brother (and in my case, an older brother), so here goes.

  • They have friends that you can crush on when you're like 17 (until you get older and realize that they're actually just as weird as your brother, so ew)
  • They give the best hugs
  • When you really want Sonic and it's like 9 PM and you don't wanna drive there you say "hey can you go get me Sonic" and they (usually) do with little restraint (sometimes)
  • Same with Chipotle
  • Same with venti peppermint hot chocolates from Starbucks (in case any of y'all were wanting to know my Starbucks order)
  • You can try and marry him off to all of your friends so that they're forced to be your friends forever (this one is super important and thus far I have been unsuccessful)
  • You can still steal their clothes??? Hello big t-shirts??? Who needs a boyfriend's closet when you have your brother's to steal from when he goes off to college???
  • When you have one brother and one sister and two bedrooms in a house, you share a bedroom with your sister until your brother becomes an adult and leaves the house and you take his bedroom and he's left with the homemade Murphy bed in the laundry room when he comes back to visit
  • They think they're really smart (and they are) so they usually know all the answers
  • He's got your back
  • (I don't know why I keep switching between he and they but I can't stop and I won't stop and I'm not sorry)
  • When he leaves on his LDS mission for two years, he drops you off at your high school and says "okay I'll see you in two years!" and doesn't make a big deal of things
  • When he travels places he brings you back the best souvenirs
  • If you message him and say "hey can you buy me these llama socks" he does
  • When you tell him "tell me you love me" he does that too
  • Maybe this is all just my brother because he's the best
  • I guess I love him

Yours truly,
