It’s National Siblings Day – will only children protest its lack of inclusiveness?

National Siblings Day

Did you know it’s National Siblings Day?

In the interests of full disclosure, if I didn’t spend any time on Twitter, I wouldn’t have known.

And when I saw it listed in the “trending” column, the first thing that entered my mind was, “How long before a butt-hurt only child decides to protest?”

I mean, if schools have to stop holding “Father/Daughter Dances” because they aren’t “inclusive,” would it really be surprising if an only child kicked up a fuss over National Siblings Day?

We’ve become a society of party-poopers.

That’s just a fact.

And unless there also happens to be a “National Only Child Day,” the odds that some thin-skinned baby makes a stink over National Siblings Day doesn’t seem outside the realm of possibility.

Any old how.

In honor of National Siblings Day, here’s my sibling and I from 1968. Aren’t we cute?

Yes, clearly I got very excited at the prospect of eating popcorn. Don’t ask me why. The truth is, I was a bit of a spaz when I was little.

And would it have killed my brother to unbutton his top button?
