When your twin sister is happily married with a family, and you are single, there are various ways you can deal with the discrepancy in your lives.
You can fully embrace your role as an uncle, lavishing your nieces and nephews with gifts and dreaming of your future as a family or you could fully embrace single life, partying like only those who are grateful not to be tied down by anything or anyone can party.
Or…..you can make fun of your twin sister’s life by recreating all of her social media pics featuring you, and a cat, and then hand all 28 photos to her for her (and your) 28th birthday.
Happy birthday Meredith. Love Gordy.
Gordy Yates is a blogger and a self-confessed crappy brother who hardly ever manages to send his sister a birthday gift, despite the fact she always manages to send him something every year, regardless of where he is in the world.
My twin sister Meredith is so great and I am so bad. Every year on my birthday, she gets me something cool: a t-shirt, a funny book, something she wanted to get rid of but chose to give to me instead, and so much more. And no matter where I’ve lived, she’s always either sent the gift in a package or saved it to give to me later. And I’m the worst brother because I never get her anything for her birthday. Generally, I don’t get someone a birthday present if they live far away, so I usually don’t get her ANYTHING even though she always gets me something. I mean, I guess it could be because we live very different lives.
