    So you’re saying, Mike, Lizzie is probably a neighbor girl?

    Mike should get one week removed from his grounding penalty now just for being so darned funny. Good one, sir!

    Well it sounds like a compliment.

    I think he almost kinda maybe gave her a compliment.

    That was a left-handed compliment. Sisters will accept those from brothers.

    Whether this might have been intended as a compliment would depend on where he put the emphasis in his statement. If he said ‘She looks too good to be MY sister, then maybe it was a compliment. But, judging by the expressions on Elly’s and Elizabeth’s faces, what he probably said was ‘She looks TOO GOOD to be my sister. And that second sentence isn’t a compliment, left handed or otherwise.

    I remember getting all prettied up for 4 of my 5 older siblings’ weddings. I was too young to be a bridesmaid, but too old to be a flower girl (I was 9-11), so my job was to man the guest book, making sure everyone signed. I DID get to be a “jr. bridesmaid” at one of my sisters’, tho.

    @TEMPLO S.U.D.

    You never had younger siblings, did you? That’s just normal sibling banter. Brothers aren’t supposed to say that their sisters are pretty — at least, not without making some sort of joke out of it. That’s just what siblings do at that age (and yes, people, he probably DOES think that it’s actually a compliment!).

    I think he should get a week added for the ‘back-handed’ compliment to Lizzie ! Plus, if he is grounded, why does he get to go to the wedding ?

    Mike doesn’t know it, but he just put himself down.

    If we exclude my five stepsisters (two of which are younger), I’m the younger sibling of only a brother. Not to mention I’ve never bantered with ANY of my stepsisters nor made a joke on their outfits.
