Air Suckage

Ever met one of those people who walk into a room and it's
as if all the air is suddenly sucked out of the place?
Well, my sister is one of those people. I haven't seen her
for, I don't know really, 3 months? 3 and a half months?
Some long period of time. We were never close when we were
little. We fought most of the time. Never had the same
interests, the same friends, etc. She has the most
sarcastic wit. Has a come back for everything. But she
also has an amazing sense of humor. Can make me laugh so
easily. But she also knows what to say and/or what to do
to piss me off. She knows the exact right combination of
buttons to push to send me into a blind rage. Since she
was 2 she's known how to do this to me. And I let her.
Well, not consciously.

This is my younger sister. She's off at school, living on
her own, and (seemingly) has no problems at all. Everyone
is "proud" and "impressed" by her. And they should be, she
deserves it. But I'm still living at home, under the roof
of my parents.

You may be saying to yourself as you read
this "Hmmm...sounds like you're jealous of your little
sister." Well you hit the nail on the head. You are
absolutely correct. I am. She's smart, and funny, and
pretty and just overall better than I am. Of course, it's
my definition of better, not anybody else's. And yes, I
don't need the speech that nobody is perfect and we all
have our own problems. I have that one memorized.

But knowing that doesn't help much, does it?
