Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat. Each week Jessi chooses a topic (scheduled in advance) that’s not book related so we that we can get to know our fellow bloggers better – and to know more about them than just books. I’m thrilled to join in and I hope to participate every week from here on out. I hope you’ll join in too – check out the details here!
This week’s topic: Siblings
Well I could go on and on about my little brother – Philip – but I won’t say as much as I’d like because he is a fairly private person in comparison to me. He’s 3 1/2 years younger than me and my BEST FRIEND. We’ve been thick as thieves our whole lives. I used to get him into all kinds of trouble when we were kids because I had all these crazy ideas and he totally went along with them. And when he didn’t and I acted solo, I still let him get in trouble right along with me. Yeah – I was evil. The thing was, my parents hardly ever wanted to punish him (I think they suspected he was innocent) and the result was lighter punishments for me too.
Now that we’re adults, we’re still close as ever. We live 10 minutes away from each other now – and when I lived in St. Louis we were constantly texting. When I came into town he let me, my BF and my dog crash at his place (sometimes for a couple months). He doesn’t drive because he has epilepsy, so I drive him around a fair bit. We’ve done two 5ks together this year and have at least two more planned. We do everything we can together – he’s even agreed to do BEA with me sometime.
Do you have any siblings? Are you close?
