The Highlight Of My Life

The highlight of my childhood was making my brother laugh so hard
that food came out his nose.
~Garrison Keillor
My brother's laugh, his real, true, genuine laugh, is one of my favorite sounds.  Sometimes he laughs so much, he gets tears in his eyes and can't speak.  That's when I know I've said something funny.  And his laughing makes me laugh even more. 

My brother, truth be told, is funnier than me.  Oh, I'm funny.  And witty.  And good looking, of course.  But Michael blows me out of the water in all categories - he may be quieter than me, but he's come out with some of the best comments of our lives. 

To this day, I still try to make him laugh.  And if I do - food coming out of his nose or not - I feel like the Queen of Everything. 

And that is the highlight of my life.

Happy Birthday, Mikey!

I don't know how funny he is, but he sure does have a cool lunchbox. I can't tell which one it is, do you know?

Pat: I looked at some other photos from the same day, and from what I can make out, it looks like the lunchbox says "Back to 1776" and has some sort of Patriotic sort of theme. We had some pretty cool lunchboxes - wish I had them now!
