Today is my brother's 59th birthday. It seems unfathomable that next year he'll be 60, when in my mind he's still 13 or 22 or maybe 40, but nowhere near 60. (Frankly, even 40 is stretching it.) When we were 13, he told me he was too old for this one "character" we used to do and that he was going to stop doing it, and I was so sad because I loved indulging it and playing along with my own character. But now, 46 years later, we're still doing it, and it makes me so stupidly giddy. Happy birthday!
