Sibling Stories: Useless Arguments

After you’ve been in a relationship with someone for a long time you start to argue about the stupidest stuff.  For example, my fiance and I just argued whether the lyrics to the Lil Scrappy rap song ( a terrible one, I must add) say “money in the  bank, shorty what you drank” vs “money in the bank, shorty what you think.”  

He was right. It’s drank.

Now, imagine the type of arguments that take place after you’ve known someone your entire life. i.e siblings.

As the youngest of three girls, I always assumed the ridiculous discussions  my sisters and I had were normal methods of communication. It wasn’t until recently, while in the car with my sister and her husband, that I realized how outrageous we must sound to other people. We spent 15 minutes arguing over the direct translation of cheap vs frugal from English to Arabic. That one doesn’t even compare to the latest argument that ensued when I told my sister that I don’t like chocolate covered marshmallows. She went on to argue that –  no, I  didn’t know what I was saying and that she knows for a fact that I’ve never before tasted a chocolate covered marshmallow. We went on like this for a good 20 minutes, even after I asked her in all seriousness,  “how would you know? Are you in my body?”

So in order to make me feel a little less crazy, I’d love if you shared some of the ridiculous things you argue about with your siblings. Tell us in the comments!
