Why are you an only child? Were you lonely? Do you have some sort of congenital illness? Are you the consequence of a one-child policy? Are you Chinese?
Ah, the questions. The never-ending questions.
I don’t mind answering them, it the stereotypes that really bore me.
Spoilt. Lonely. Anti-social. Pu-lease.
That look that people give you when you say you are sans sibling, like they’ve just remembered where they left their keys in 1997. Annoyance and relief that they’ve ‘figured you out’. It all makes sense! They’re maladjusted. Phew.
