Growing up, my sister and I fought like puppies’especially on family road trips. She’d punch me in the face (unprovoked, I maintain!) from her perch in her baby car seat and I’d retaliate by pinching her chubby little legs. Then we’d both scream bloody murder until Mom intervened. Those were fun times.
However, the trips we’ve taken as together as adults have been decidedly more enjoyable. Take our recent trip to Vegas: We went down there with a small group of friends and while the others were visiting the casinos and attractions, we indulged our mutual vices’shopping, eating and goofing around (that’s us up there being silly on the Strip).
I loved spending that time with my sister because it made me realize that she and are very much alike. And it’s comforting to know that there’s someone in this world who knows what I like without having to ask.
OK, now that I’ve shared a sibling memory, I want to know all about yours. Write to us about your favourite sibling memory and you could see your story published in Best Health magazine. But that’s not all: we’re also giving away a selection of The Body Shop‘s Brush With Fashion makeup, worth $77.50, to the writer of the very best sibling story. The glam packaging for this limited-edition collection was designed in collaboration with the London College of Fashion.
Just post your memories on our Facebook page, tweet them @besthealthmag or send them to [email protected] by Saturday, April 30 at 23:59:59 EDT and we’ll pick one lucky winner of a Brush With Fashion makeup collection (prize may not be exactly as shown, click here for full contest rules). If you win, you could share the makeup with your sister…or not.
