The 10 Things Only Sisters Understand

Sacha Strebe

My sister is pretty much the best thing that ever happened to me. OK, truthfully, I didn’t always feel that way (I was insanely jealous when she was born and once painted her face in Vegemite when Mom wasn’t looking), but it wasn’t long before I realized how cool it was to have a live-in best friend. Together we’ve cried rivers—some happy, some sad—traveled the world, laughed until our faces cracked, bickered like an old married couple, and shared our innermost secrets, and now we’re inseparable. Even though we live thousands of miles away from each other—she lives in Australia, and I’m in America—we call, text, FaceTime, or email multiple times a day. My sister is a best friend for life. But don’t take my word for it. A University of Wisconsin study found that sisters share an “unconditional friendship” that they feel “lucky enough, and proud to be a part of.” I’ll second that. Scroll down for a few things that sisters do—and only sisters understand.
