As I was thinking about childhood toys yesterday, I also thought about Christmas presents for my older brother. We grew up very close (like best friends) because we were so close in age (he's 2 years older). So when it came time to finding a roommate after I graduated college, who better to tolerate you than your older brother who you shared a room with as a child.
He tolerates my sewing supplies all over the place, hammering at the wee hours of the night, and a shedding pug who jumps and slobbers all over you while you play video games in the living room. And he can eat everything that I cook, and helps with the dishes, too! Awesome, huh? I've trained him well.
When it comes time for Christmas, what do you get your Coffee Addicted - Electrical Engineer - Video Gamer - Triathlete older brother?
Ah, a little bit of everything. :)
Yes ladies, he's single.
