I have 5 siblings all up. I’m not related to all of them by blood, but these days the last thing that defines family seems to be shared genetics, doesn’t it.
My oldest brother is Aron. He shares my step-father’s name and his personality to boot. He seems to enjoy nothing more than fishing, camping and pissing of his younger brother and sisters. He’s always there in a fix though.
Then there is Tad. Tad and I are closer than any of my other brothers even though we don’t share a parent at all. I like to think of Tad as being Jeeves to my Wooster. Im always off spending too much money and getting myself in ridiculous situations and he’s there right behind, making me tea and crumpets, pushing me in the right direction and cleaning up my messes without even a mention of the depth of the shit I’ve gotten myself in.
Cat is my sister-confidant. Until she got married and moved out of home about 3 years ago, we shared a room for all my living memory and as such have always been close; and she has always supported me in my wild flights of fancy. Even when I decided to try and learn the cello and practiced til ten every night. Cat are I are blood sisters too, and we look very similar to each other. We share clothes and shoe sizes and even though her breasts are bigger I get revenge by having a better six pack. :P
Tad and Seth share a parental set, though you wouldn’t think so from looking at them. Seth is the genetic throwback: dark eyed, dark haired, muscular and hung like a colt (He asked me to mention that :P) Seth and I are pretty much exactly the same age and we have a difficult relationship. Mostly because we’d like to shag each other senseless but society says no, even if the rest of the family seems to be okay with the idea (so long as we don’t tell them about it in any great detail.)
Last of all, and in a cruel twist of naming, there is Eden. Eden is four years my junior and is the result of the consummation of my mum and step dad’s marriage. She likes cats far too much to be sane. I’m sure she’ll end up like the crazy old cat lady off The Simpsons. That said, she’s also the most extroverted of our family and, although she’s only 14, already has herself a steady relationship of several years.
I think that pretty much rounds us out.
