People who are the only child at home never get to know what it's like to have siblings. This girl got a
Having a sibling is fun but also annoying at the same time. They will fight with you, tell you they are mom's favorite child, borrow your things and never return them and so much more. This video is a perfect example of what having a sibling looks like. In a TikTok video posted by @lonnieiiv, a girl asked her friends what it's like having siblings and they gave her a crash course on it, after which she sure didn't want to have any siblings. One friend can be seen putting his fingers into her drink and sprinkling it on her, then the other mixes her food and uses her chopsticks to play music on her bowl and throws food on her. Then they eat her food, put some food on her chopstick with their hand, and start throwing things at her. A friend sitting next to her says, "Why are you touching me?" A little while later, he tells her, "Mom hates you!" It concludes with a friend telling her to "grow up." The whole experience was so traumatic that by the end of it, it looks like the girl wants to cry.
The video went viral with more than 1.3 million views and 224,000 likes. It is captioned, "Don't ask, just bring it." @sheabuttercosplay commented, "Years of trauma in 40 seconds 😂😂😂😂😂😂" maddog69sb commented, "they understood the assignment instantly 😂😂" @raelee92 commented, "didn't hear the 'we found you at the zoo and brought you home' 😂😂" @majinn_t812 commented, "the accuracy haha we live for another siblings distress and the 'mom h8s you' was iconic." @aikwit commented, "You forgot the “you’re adopted”. Other than that, this is perfectly summed up. Now, she’s had the sibling experience lol." @astriaalexa commented, "My middle child tells my oldest we are taking him to the adoption center daily 😂 siblings are something else."
However, there is another side to a sibling's relationship. When Indiana basketball junior Anthony Leal came to know that his sister would graduate from college with a substantial debt, he decided to pay it off himself. Leal, a business major at Indiana University who plays point guard for the Indiana Hoosiers, got straight to work when the NCAA changed its policy in 2021, enabling student-athletes to monetize their name, image and likeness. Thanks to this policy, he got sponsorship deals and also started his own real estate firm. And best part of it all was that Leal was able to make his sister's Christmas a memorable one. In a heartwarming video, Lauren Leal can be seen opening a card from her young brother with an adorable note and the news that he has paid off her student loans. She herself was a basketball player for DePauw University in Greencastle before an injury ended, reports Good Morning America.
The note from Leal read, “Hey sis, I wanted you to know how much I look up to you and admire who you are. Your soul is beautiful and you are the best role model ever. There is no doubt that I have made it to where I am today because of you. Someone like you deserves no burdens or restrictions in life." Lauren was left speechless as she silently read the next part of the note before saying: "I don't even know how much that is!" "I do — it's zero now," Leal replied. The siblings hugged each other and Lauren thanked his brother for what he did.
