My mum came up with this.

Birthday, my brother’s
June 28, 2008

Today is my brother’s birthday.  The best thing about having him as my brother is the fact that we have interesting conversations apart from those that result from Overprotective Older Brother Syndrome (Who is this guy?  How do you know him?  Does he like you?  Have you gone out with him?  *head implodes*)

Here are a few family conversation snippets from yesterday and today.

I was quite young when we had this conversation.  Many times.

#63 The Godmother

A mosquito kept me up for the better part of the night, refusing to let me sleep. At 5:30 a.m., I decided to take a shower and start my day early. Unbeknownst to me, my mum – worried that I was not feeling well – was waiting for me outside the bathroom.

And that is how I learnt that the lighting (or lack of it) in the hours before sunrise is perfect for clandestine mafia meetings.

I am neither a devotee nor detractor of Joe Rogan. However, I am/was a fan of Fear Factor.

As for my brother, the countdown is to his 55th birthday. Also, I told you so.
