When I´m Not Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Missie @ The Unread Reader.
After a little break, I´m back with another edition of when I´m not Reading.
Today, I´m planning a day just with my sister. She doesn´t have to work today, so we´re planning one of our Girls´ Night Out. We´re going to the cinema, watch Letters to Juliet or Killers.
It´s going to be a perfect evening, complete with a funny and/or romantic movie, tons of popcorn, soft drinks and other stuff with life-threatening amounts of sugar or fat.
I´m always having such a great time with her, no matter if we´re on holidays together or simply talking the night away about boy(friend) trouble. Maybe we get along so great because we´re so much alike, both in character, hobbies and, yes, also looks. I don´t know how often I´ve been asked whether we are twins. Here´s a photo of us (it´s not the most recent, but I guess you´ll get the idea):
As my grandparents grow older and their eyesight is getting worse, they mix us up as well. Even more frustrating.
Sometimes even total strangers ask us if we´re twins. Sometimes it´s okay, sometimes I´m a little annoyed. My sister is five years older than I am, so does that mean I look older than I actually am? Seriously, which woman likes to hear that?
But despite all that, I dearly love her and I´m glad to have such a strong relationship with her.
Do you have any siblings? Do get along or can´t you stand each other? What are you doing when you´re not reading?
