My brother's moving back to my town. He's in the process of buying a house and getting a job transfer. The transfer's just come though, so he has to be here as of Monday, but the house will take at least a few weeks yet, so I get him living in my spare room for a while.|
1) How long will it take before we want to kill each other? We haven't lived together since we were fifteen and sixteen, and we seem to have grown out of the huge screaming arguments and hitting each other thing in the intervening years. How likely is reversion? Have you had to live with a sibling again once you'd become a Proper Grown Up, and how did it work out?
2) Are we being realistic thinking our cats will cope? Mine have the run of the house, and his will have to stay in the spare room, either until the house is sorted or they can be trusted not to take chunks out of each other. I hear when introducing a new cat one's supposed to keep it in one separate room for a while, so we're sort of doing that, right? How long do you think we'll last before the urge to duct tape all the cats to the walls will become overpowering?
3) Would you be annoyed if your sibling was intending to move into your house in four days, but you heard this from your parent rather than from the sibling in question? How much beer would the sibling have to buy you before you stopped using this as a bargaining chip?
