Today, my big brother, my ride or die, my best friend, and the closest thing I have to a twin turns the big 2-4 (hence the name Black Mamba as a reference to Kobe Bryant). We have had our fair share of arguments, fights, tears, and trips to the “hospital,” but I must admit that I never get tired of hanging out with this kid. Somehow he manages to annoy me and make me laugh in the same breath. I don’t know how he does it, but, while I’m rolling my eyes and trying hard to not give him the co-sign he’s looking for, I’m doing my best to hold back my laughter and amusement. He is probably the person who understands my ambition, humor, and overall mentality the best, so it’s hard to not respect and love him. He’s only 24 and he’s got some kinks to work out, but he’s accomplished so much in his short years and I know it’s only going to get better. Trust me when I say this is our year!
Happy Birthday Dog from the bottom of my heart! I hope you have a great birthday as a start to an even better year! This is only the beginning.
