Siblings of Sartell: The Brown sisters
November 3, 2022
This week’s Siblings of Sartell are the Brown sisters, who consist of senior Emily, freshman Lauren, and seventh-grade Claire.
The bond the sisters have with one another is unbreakable. Their chaotic and fun-loving energy is hard to miss and is apparent in their responses.
Q: When you spend time together, what do you like to do?
Emily: Watch TV.
Lauren: Watch movies.
Claire: Watch TV and eat.
Q: What do you have in common?
Emily: I’d say, how we do in school, like we’re all…good school kids. Academic achievers.
Claire: Tempers, especially Emily.
Q: How often do you argue?
All: A LOT, every day, multiple times.
Q: What annoys you the most about each other?
Emily: I would say..kind of like the fact where we’re so much alike, that it’s just too much. And they’re literally always there, they’re always in the room when I need time alone.
Lauren: For Claire, she talks too much and can be annoying sometimes, and for Emily, probably her crankiness.
Claire: Lauren’s dumbness and Emily’s crankiness.
Q: What do you love the most about each other?
Emily: I like how we laugh over stupid stuff all the time.
Lauren: Probably how I know I can talk to them and stuff like that…they’re always there so I will never be lonely, probably.
Claire: How we talk to each other.
Q: Favorite childhood memory with each other?
All: Going to our grandma’s house and playing outside in the woods…and playing fort with our cousins.
Q: What are your siblings’ weird obsessions?
Emily: Lauren’s obsessed with having to look cool. “I have to have this certain clothing because I have to look cool right now.”
Lauren: Emily, probably soccer and sports like that. She’s very precise with her socks. Claire is obsessed with organizing, it’s like, insane.
Claire: Emily’s shoes have to be the same tightness. Her socks have to be the same length at her legs…and [every morning] she has to fix her hair with her pony.
Q: What are each of you really bad at?
Emily: Lauren and Claire cannot make a story short…they have to tell every little detail. The only question was like, what color shirt were they wearing…and they make it into a whole story.
Lauren: I don’t know. Claire’s bad at stopping when someone tells her to stop.
Claire: Emily’s really bad at listening. Emily doesn’t listen if it’s not, like, her way.
Q: What are each of you really good at?
Emily: Claire’s good at teaching others. She’s very good at taking care of the daycare kids and teaching them.
Lauren: Emily’s good at, I feel like, being like a leader kind of. Taking action. Emily’s good at being independent…she doesn’t need anyone.
Claire: Lauren’s good at being there for others when they need her. Emily’s good at being hardworking, independent, and brave. When Emily starts something alone, she finishes it alone.
Q: Who is funniest?
Q: Who is the current favorite?
Emily: It switches.
Lauren: I made [our parents] mad today so…currently not me. It depends who did something that day or who they’re mad at.
Claire: I feel like they treat us all pretty equally, I don’t think they have a favorite.
Q: Who would you trust to bail you out of jail?
Emily: Probably Lauren.
Lauren: I think it would be Emily.
Claire: I think Emily. I could just picture me in jail, for getting in a fight, and Emily would be like “never do it again!!!” Lauren would leave me in there for a week. She’s more serious about that stuff.
Q: What is something you share that other siblings do not?
Emily: Personality, what we think is funny.
Lauren: We laugh at the dumbest things, we think it’s weird.
Claire: Personality. And we laugh over the dumbest stuff.
Q: Lauren and Claire, how do you feel about Emily going to college next year?
Lauren: I’ll be happy for her, because she’s moving on and stuff, but it’ll be weird.
Claire: I’m gonna cry my eyes out.
I am proud of all of us doing well, in like, everything we do, like school, tests…whenever it’s hard, we always get through it no matter what.” — Emily
