Today is my brother’s birthday! He is 36 years old. He is two years older than me. He likes a lot of things, but I think a few of his favorite things are books, jelly beans, and golf. He is very smart and can make clever jokes faster than anyone I know. I like him a lot and I’m sad that I can’t be with him on his birthday. We fought a lot as little kids, but we started being nice to each other in junior high school. At a young age, he used to use his wits as a weapon, but as the years go by, he gets more and more thoughtful and kind. Here are some pictures of us as adults. I miss you you Ben! I hope we can spend some quality time together soon!
