Sunday is for Smiling!

August 16, 2009

Yesterday afternoon, upon my return from adventuring with someone I’m liking more and more all the time (and no, mother, I didn’t jump out of any airplanes. i am alive), I found an envelope waiting for me on the kitchen table.

The return address was a Minnesota one, and the name scribbled in the top left hand corner said, “A. Olson,” but it certainly wasn’t my dad’s handwriting.

It didn’t take more than a split moment for the conversation to come back to me.  I knew what was in that envelope.

So I ripped it open and sure enough:


My brother mailed me one. single. cashew.

And yeah, it’s now hanging on my bulletin board.

Listen, you don’t even have to get it.  That’s gotta make you smile, am I right?

Do you have any inside jokes with your siblings?

Do you have a best friend like mine?

    My brother and I created a drinking game. Everytime one of us does something that one of our parents often does/would do, we have to drink.

    We virtually never hang out, talk, or even chat on IM without one of us exclaiming “Drink!” at the other. It confuses people.

    Also…we’re clearly both becoming our parents. *shudder*.

    My little bro and I send each other text messages all the time that say,

    “You stink, I can smell you from here.”

    The return reply is always,


    Nobody gets it but us but it ALWAYS makes me smile.

    I love the cashews. Love, love, love it.
