“It’s not like I believe in everlasting love”

-Laura Marling

My apologies to Jamie.

So when my brother and I go out to the bar, and end up talking to a person or group of people, it usually goes like this.

her”blah blah blah… so how long have you two been together?”

me”uh, us? nonono, he’s my brother.”

her”oh.  haha, I totally thought you two were together.”


her”you dont look like brothers”

me”oh, watch.  Hey Brad.  Smile.” (we both smile)

her”oh, yeah I see it now.  So which one of you is gay?”


her”okay.  that makes sense.  I thought he was.  So I just figured.”

me”yeah… no”

her”Well, I love your brother.  I think he’s hilarious”

me”yeah” (at some point I think it is a good idea to tell her she is gorgeous.  She says I am too,  which is completely unexpected.  She also tells me this after telling me she is not a lesbian, which she claimed to be earlier.  Well, not full-time anyway.  Then she and “the-friend-who-doesn’t -really-want-to-be-out-anyway-and-now-has-a-headache-so-they-have-to-leave” take off.)

  1. Any girl who thinks you and your brother don’t look alike is way too dumb for you.

    Unless you WANT her to be dumb, of course.
