My (not so) little brother is another year older today. I Skyped with him this morning and was reminded how great it is to have technology that allows us to communicate with each other on opposite sides of the world. Patrick marches to the beat of his own drum, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. He has always been the family comedian. He has given all of our family members new names that, for better or worse, managed to stick (MIB, Faps, Smeen and BGD). He astounds me with his knowledge of random trivia. He drives me crazy with his ability to persuade just about anyone to buy just about anything (but especially Apple products). He knows how to push my buttons like no other person in the world. He regularly makes up words and phrases that become an integral part of our family language (In a bun, Supplevania, Cousin Ned, ‘Rogies, tard face deluxe). He has an infectious laugh and a great smile. I am proud to call him my brother. 祝你生日快乐Patrick!
