There have been many times in my life when I have really missed having a sister around. For example, I hate watching movies alone and there are certain movies that Matt will just refuse to watch. The following movies can only be watched with certain sisterly female companions:
A Room With A View
Pride and Prejudice (A&E version, with Colin Firth)
Troop Beverly Hills (yes, that's right)
And this list doesn't even get into the sleazy television shows that I can only watch with a female companion (Sex and the City, What Not to Wear, the OC etc.). I love how you can call up a sister whenever and not feel wierd about it. If you want someone to go with you on a long shopping quest for a certain pink dress required by a certain brother's wedding, a sister is the perfect candidate. Or if you just really feel like going out to lunch at your favorite sushi place, she is always up for it. Maybe you've had something really crappy happen to you; Who do you call? Your sis of course.
I am so happy that my wonderful sister Liz has moved out here (yeah!) as of yesterday. It makes living in Utah much more bearable.
