Posted -

1. You always have a partner in crime…

…who’s also your main competition.

2. He tries to be protective of you…

…and so do his friends.

3. He’s bossy and annoying…

…until he joins the party.

4. He compliments your baking…

…and then eats it all up.

5. He makes you laugh…

…or, at least tries to.

6. You can be crazy in front of him…

...because he already knows you’re nuts.

7. He’ll chill with you on family road trips…

…for as long as he can stand it.

8. You can divide and conquer your parents…

…and weasel your way out of trouble.

9. He gives criticism that’s constructive and subtle...

…sometimes.

10. You and he share the best high fives…

…with or without warning.

11. He’s both your favorite idiot...

…and your wisest friend.

12. And even when you’re not acting like the best of friends…

...he’ll always be family.

There, she edits the Kenyon Observer and tutors Economics. Sarah hails from New Albany, Ohio but is of Syrian origin. When she’s not obsessively writing to-do lists or hustling to complete them, she can be found running at the athletic center, reducing the worldwide candy population, asserting her opinions, or giggling uncontrollably.
