Siblings
 

Last night I got to meet D's sister. She came into town to celebrate their moms birthday and I can say that the experience was a good one but also a strange one. I am an only child so for me to witness the way siblings act around one another is something that I am not used to. I grew up around families that had more than one child and more often than not I was always friends with the youngest of the group. It’s nothing new for me necessarily but it is still weird to be a part of the interaction. 

Yesterday I got to take them to my favorite bar where they have the .50 wings and $2 drinks. I learned that his sister isn’t a huge wing person which made me sad because I wouldn’t have suggested the place if I knew. But she still seemed to be ok with the fact that they had a good selection of drinks and didn’t seem to mind the atmosphere of the area. 

Then it happened, we were sitting at the table waiting on our food when the conversation started flying between the two. It was about everything and anything they had done together as siblings and I instantly felt like I was in need of another drink as well as a little bit of time to consume all the information that was being thrown at me. 

The thing about sibling relationships that I don’t understand is the connection between them. After all I am an only child and I didn’t grow up with someone else to look to for guidance or someone to "break the parents" in as Dylan's sister said. It’s an awkward stance that you just kind of let flow since you can’t really do much but relax and let them have fun with the conversation. I learned a lot about my bf and I learned a lot about his sister. Do I still feel kind of weird meeting her and being in the middle of this sibling relationship? Yes. Of course I do but at the same time I understand that I am dating D so I have to do my best and keep moving forward and ride along with the conversations. 

I just hope I get more used to it as time goes on because right now I feel weird being a part of this sibling group. Time will only tell. 

 

And of course we had to get ice cream since it was waffle cone wednesday.
