You’ve probably heard the punchline before, but here’s the full context for the quote. (via muffinw)

Oh dear, I’m sorry. Might be a dumb suggestion ‘cause I don’t know all factors— perhaps if all else fails, live with your sister for a bit? I mean, like offer to pay rent and such and treat it like a roomie agreement
I think we’d probably kill each other. There is an empty bedroom at mom’s house and my brother is going to college (fingers crossed) in the fall so I could just move into his ‘room’ at my dad’s place. I am deeply grateful for the safety net I have, but we’re just enough dysfunctional that living apart is ideal.
Welp, just found out my roommate is bailing on me for next year because she’s having to quit her job for her grad school work so this is going to be a stressful next few months.
My sister and I are having wildly different lives right now.

This is by far the best birthday card I have ever received!
BEST BIRTHDAY CARD IN EXISTENCE OR BEST BIRTHDAY EVER?
This is pretty cool.
WHERE are they getting this stuff !!
Glad to hear it :)
I’m pretty happy. They are doing the inspection later this week. A is a bit freaked out because she is, after all, putting pretty much all her money and future on the line here. But it will mean she and my niece will be able to put down roots for at least the next decade.
So my sister got the house. As much as one can before the formal closing late next month at least.
But she made the offer and they accepted so fuck yeah for that.
We celebrated with an impromptu cookout at their current house where my niece insisted we wear various parts of her dress up wardrobe.
