Remember when you were a school kid?  And there was that one squidgey kid whose big sister would protect him from the rotten kids?  And then you realized one day that she wasn’t treating her little brother any better than the bullies, it’s just that she’s family and the kid was used to it from her anyhow.  Heck, it was probably her that taught him to eat bugs if you offered him pocket change.

There was a point to that story, but I’ve forgotten what it was.
