Happy Birthday, Little Brother

My brother is two and a half years younger than I am, and it's his birthday today.

When he was tiny, our mother was inspired to try parental multitasking: she was nursing him while reading a book to me, when all of sudden he let out a holler. I had calmly reached over and chomped down on his foot. Damn it, read to me and stop that nonsense with the baby!

This is a picture of him when he was about nine. Is it any surprise that he's grown up to be an omnivore with a distinct predilection for pork?

Happy Birthday!

Aww; cute photo and H.B. to him.

And to you and niobe, lucky ducks. I always wanted a little brother. Instead I had a big brother who treated me like his personal punching bag. Some of the time. To be fair.

Happy birthday! Is that a LIVE pig on the kitchen counter?!

Magpie said...

Very definitely not alive, and destined for a roasting pan in short order! Childhood tradition of pig roasts in our parents' circle of friends

Hope your brother's birthday was happy! I'm a little sad about the pig -- I was hoping it was an odd pet or something.

Hey, he looks a little like Leif Garrett... before the drug addiction and murderous car accidents...
