Dear brother...



so, despite what I say to people
.
that I love having my own room
.
that I love no more wet bathroom floors
.
that I love no more toothpaste and hair gel smeared across the sink
.
that I love no more petty arguments about nothing
.
that I love no more evil eye when I beat you to the shower in the early morning
.
that I love no more digs about my goals to lose weight, skip every morning for five minutes or stop eating chocolate, that just never seem to come through
.
that I love no more rolled eyes and sighs of exasperation when I announce my latest imagination adventure
.
that I love no more ganging up with Lizzie and having a "let's make fun of Sam day"
.
and that I love being able to put my special treats in the fridge or cupboard, without having them mysteriously disappear
.
yes. despite all this.
.
I miss you.
.
Your last email made me smile, and I am very proud of you and what you are doing.
I envy your oppurtunities to meet new people, and to experience such a different culture.
I laughed how you attached a special side note to Casper, telling him you missed him because there were no dogs there you could safely pat without risk of disease. You're pretty funny sometimes, I'll admit. ;)
.
I love you, brother.
