Default What kind of question is that?! (Warning: whiny brat thread)

I was at my school with my brother because I had to drop something off and he wanted to say hi to some old teachers. I just tagged along because I'm socially awkward like that. lol
Anyway, I don't know most of these people, but if I follow the Pre-IB program into actual IB, I'll have them. One of the teachers asked how I was related to his previous student and I said I was his little sister.
And the first question out of his mouth is "Oh, are you as smart as your brother?"
First of all, if I say yes, what kind of cocky a** am I? So I'm supposed to say no, that I'm pretty stupid?
Another thing, I know the teacher doesn't know this, but I've walked in my brother's shadow academically all my life. In seventh grade, my math teacher told my mom that "she isn't quite like her brother. She's just not as outgoing and I think she gets lost easily."
Um, yeah. Both those things can be attributed to the two years I spent not going to school at all. I was "home-schooled" but things fell apart there and the only real school-related thing I did those two years was read.
Anyway, I'm being a little brat right now and just glad I have a common last name so I don't have more teachers comparing me to my brother.
Thankfully, he's always there to support me. He's actually pretty modest and I think he recognizes a wide variety intelligence, not just the "test smart" kind.

Okay, I'm done being a brat. Sorry 'bout that.
