So, today is Matthew’s birthday. He is *gulp* 35. I say that because in two years, I’ll be there too! I can laugh at Jason because he’s 5 1/2 years older than me and that is forever away!
Since he doesn’t like us to sing to him, I’ll do it here.
*la la La La LA LA LA LA LA LA LA*
Ok, I’m ready.
Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy birthday dear my favorite second oldest brotherrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, Happy Birthday to you!
So I have a funny story for you about Matthew. I seem to have this habit of annoying my brothers. See here.
So there are a lot of stories I could tell about him in honor of his birthday, but I thought I would tell you the one where I got the name of the blog.
I was being the younger sister that I am and I was just
being perfect annoying him. I was taunting him, using this high voice that I use (if you’ve ever been around me, you know which voice I’m talking about) So in this annoying voice, I was surely talking about his buff truck! Dancing around him, running in the house. When he starts to get upset, his face looks like this:
Anyway, he will huff & puff and then he will EXPLODE. This is what I had been waiting for! I love to get them to that point. It must just be a sister thing. So there were a couple of sayings growing up. One was where you would put your finger and your thumb and you would slide your index finger against your thumb and say "this is the world’s smallest violin playing my heart bleeds for you" the other huge one was "Cry me a river!" Soooooo, I had egged Matthew on until he yelled at me:
"SARA!!!!!!!!!! CRY ME A LIVER!!!!!!!!"
So, you can imagine by this point, I’m already in my element getting him going and then instead of RIVER, he said LIVER!
So I of course, laughed. Really hard. Like pee my pants hard. He stomped off. Slamming the doors as he went. His room was in the garage, so he slammed the door to the laundry room, to the garage and to his room.
I have a couple of more stories to share in the future, and yes, I’m sure I’ll share some of my own. Maybe. ha!
So I just wanted to give a shout out to my big brudder, Matthew.
