Well, I have 3 siblings and I’m close to all of them, but I’ve been closest to my brother for the longest, since he lived at home for most of my childhood.
You are the greatest big brother I could ever ask for. No one could ever replace you. Your determination to get things done (well, things YOU really want to get done) and get through the hard times is inspiring to me. You know that song ‘I get knocked down I get up again’ that we always listened to when I was younger? That’s you. No matter what, you always get back up, even during the times that I’m not so sure I’d get back up if I were you, you do it.
Even though you make me cry sometimes because you’re a big jerk when you want to be, you always make me laugh to make up for it, even if it means grabbing me in a big bear hug and squashing me. Many of my favourite memories are the ones I have with you. One of the best summers I ever had was spending two weeks in Edmonton going fishing with you every day. I never caught anything, but it was fun trying to 4X4 through that swampy stuff in the van and getting lost multiple times on our way to different spots.
I hate that you moved to Edmonton in the first place and now moved back there again. I miss going downstairs and sitting in my original spot behind your legs to watch WWF and eat Chicago deep dish and play twisted metal on the play-station, or cheer for the packers on NFL. I miss playing cars with you and driving R/C trucks and having you read me Harry Potter before I went to bed and drinking slurpees that were practically as big as me.
I love that I never hesitate to tell you anything and that, when giving advice, you usually give the most unbiased advice. I wish I could help you with stuff like you help me.
By the way, when you get married again, I’m invoking little sister rights. You’re moving back to Calgary, no if’s, and’s or but’s ;D.
I wish you could have come down for Christmas, it just wasn’t the same. And I wish you were here to give me a hug, because I really, really miss you right now.
Love you lots, you big baseball-face-watermelon-butt
