I have one brother who, as a child, I did not get on well with as he was "good" and I was naughty!
My parents later told me I had far more spirit than he did, however we were not close.
So, no this question, supplied by Rice (thank you!) does not apply to me at all even though my brother and I are now very good friends and speak once a week - he lives on the other side of Australia to myself.
Yes! We have the same mannerisms, we look the same and people would often confuses us when we were younger (my sister now lives 4 hours away). We used to have arguments every few mornings because we'd both get dressed and realise we were practically wearing the same clothes and demand the other go get changed.
We also often message or call each other at the same time.
however, I am an identical twin so this is not unusual for us.
I share a love for music with my btother but not much else . We get along but we are not alike. He speaks his mind, I am more conservative. He us not afraid if upsetting people with his opinions. He went into education like me but left to become a firefighter.
It is a ton of fun, I can tell you :-))) My sister lives in another country . . . she arrived for a visit . . . my daughter was in hysterics . . . we had the same shoes and bag and were wearing the same colours. My daughter was just pointing and laughing. We had not noticed. LOL
The Answer to this is very sadly NO. However I have a certain friend of almost the same age whose thoughts are not only like my own, but also at the same time, despite living many miles apart from each other!! We have often phoned each other as well as shared almost exactly similar emails and, as well as being hilarious, it is actually somewhat of a comfort with my own sister and I being estranged after many long years on MY behalf of attempting to rebuild a bridge! I have some truly special e-friends who I also feel extremely close to, We think along such similar wavelengths and it is like we are in the same room!! I feel very lucky to share such happiness with these special people. After all... Friends are the family we make for ourselves!!!!
Well, Jules, my brother visited yesterday and we each had a cut on our right index finger . . !! It was a bugbear as we were laying down twelve 50 litre bags of pine bark and other odd jobs. He must be the bigger sook as I had to give him a bandaid. L O L
Men and boys are DEFINITELY the bigger sooks with any little discomfort!! The 8-year-old next door was whining about a sore which he had managed to inflict on himself while riding his bike. Even his mum, who usually panders to this younger son, told him to have a really good look and then show her again, as she simply could NOT see a thing!! He is such a wimp that I had to go inside where I would not be heard to laugh!!! I must say I felt very proud of his mother for finally telling him to stop complaining about NOTHING!!
Added to this comment, I am so glad that you also know how special having a really good friend is!! It is a real gift!!
