I find myself doing things to constantly annoy my sisters just because (but God knows that I’d kill for them too). I guess it’s really just brotherly instinct; To be overprotective and a pain in the ass at the same time. And I think they know it too since they let me get away with it most of the time. I guess I just like reminding them that I’m their younger brother despite me being more than a foot taller than all of them.
Because for as long as I can remember, my parents have always told me to look after my sisters even though they’re all older than me (by 9 years or more). And ever since, I’ve always taken that role seriously. Part of me knows that back then I simply liked being entrusted with a “grown up task”. Kids like it when parents do that; treating kids like a grown up. But now that I really am capable of protecting them, I take that role seriously. I act like their bodyguard/guardian whenever we go out. Heck, they usually ask me to go shopping with them just so they have a guy with them (and have someone to carry their bags). It’s not just boyfriends that suffer you know. But I don’t mind. They compensate me anyways with food (did I mention that I loved being the youngest? Free food!).
But that doesn’t stop me from acting out whenever I can. I just like annoying them for the heck of it.
Because being mature and immature at the right moments? It’s all in a day’s work.
P.S. As for my brother(s)? The usual guy stuff. Talk about diet, gym and all that. Yes you read that right. I still qualify for “guy stuff”.
