i’m nice

My brother yells at me because I try to save the environment by turning off the lights. He says it will not make a serious impact on the world or our wallets if I would just please leave a light on for him when he gets home after dark. I say, carry a headlamp in your pocket.

My brother yells at me because I Clorox the kitchen counters after several cocktails at three in the morning. He says there is a difference between cleanliness and poison. I say, there are babies and animals on the commercial for this product, so it can’t be poison.

My brother forces me to be in charge of cooking the meat for dinner. I tell him we are going to get salmonella and accidentally overcook it. He tells me I did a great job.

I yell at my brother for being messy, trip over my yoga mat in the hallway, and jump over the pile of every shoe I own to dive onto my unmade bed. Then I blog about him in an act of love and decide to go buy hangers so that I can put the clothes on the floor into his closet.

It all comes out in the wash, you know.

    Make sure that when it gets cold this winter you turn the heat down to 55 on your way out to work – while he is still asleep in bed. Then you can blog about it.
