Sibling Rivalry I was just

Sibling Rivalry

I was just thinking about this over the Holidays, which I do at every Holiday in which my sister and I are together, in the same room and don't beat the living hell out of each other. You see, I didn't think that day would ever come.

Definition: Sibling Rivalry: See Quality Weenie and Wastebasket (my nickname for sis when we were young)

I'm not kidding, my sister and I defined sibling rivalry, no actually we took it to new heights or is that a new low?

I'm exactly 1 year, 5 months and 27 days older than my sister, that has disaster written all over it and it didn't help that our mother played that rivalry off both of us.

We would fight over everything, anything and nothing. I beat the crap out of my sister one night because I couldn't sleep and she wouldn't stop snoring (yes it didn't help that we had to share a bedroom for the first 16 years of our lives either). She in turn beat the crap out of me because I would not stop making fun of her crush on the guy on Battlestar Galactica. I cut the hair on all her barbies, she pulled the arms off mine. I disowned her at age 14 (I even had it nortorized by a friend), we would wear each others clothes and ruin them, break things, scratch favorite records, pull tapes apart, she was late on purpose to my wedding rehearsal so in turn I was late to her rehersal (we got married 7 months apart) and the list goes on. She told me on my wedding day that my butt was huge in my wedding dress, I in turn made fun of her small boobs on her wedding day. We were evil to each other.

What's even more amazing is we came out with no broken bones, just plenty of scratches and bruises, pulled muscles, missing hair and probably a few less brain cells from the beatings.

It was only recently, only within the last 5 years that I guess we both grew up and looked at how we treated each other and changed that.

So what was your sibling rivalry like?
