Daily Prompt: The Luckiest People

“Who was the first person you encountered today? Write about him or her.” –The Daily Post

Technically, the first person I encountered today was my little sister. She yelled at me this morning while I was showering because apparently I was taking too long. She told my dad I was in the shower for two hours which was completely WRONG – I was really only in there for 20 minutes!

My sister and I are two very different people. I’m not even sure how/why we are so close with one another because we really are opposites. I’m the studious, optimistic, neat-freak. She’s the disrespectful, sloppy, bratty, socialite.

I love her to death but on some days, it’s hard for me to be around her. She manages to put a negative spin on almost everything and as someone who is so positive about life, I find her presence a little draining. We still have a blast together and I think she’s an awesome person. We just bump heads a lot.

That’s part of why I’ve been so scared to come out to her. In the moment, I know she’d be the most supportive, loving, wonderful sister in the world BUT the minute we get into a fight that involves Mom and Dad, I have no doubt she’d use my coming out to her -and not yet to my parents- as a way to blackmail me.
