I sat up until 12:45 talking with my brother.
I hope he leaves that girl. I doubt he will. He shares my desire to see the absolute best in people no matter what. Usually to our detriment. Instead of being pro-active, he’s waiting for her to dump him this weekend. I just worry about what will happen when she doesn’t.
He is also a jackass*.
I dragged my sorry ass out of bed extra early so I didn’t mess up the routine of the roommate, and so that my brother had plenty of time to get himself ready for school.
What did the brother do with that time? Continued to sleep. Until about 5 minutes past the very last possible minute.
Result? Jen is all ready to go, and ends up sitting around the house waiting for him to be ready to leave for 15 extra minutes (minutes that could have been spent sleeping!), then is dropped off at an intersection near work, because jackass doesn’t have time to drive me any further or he’ll be late.**
It’s a good thing I have another brother who’s much more considerate (and more fun to drink with), because if I were only left with jackass, I’d feel really ripped off. Perhaps that’s the way it goes when you get 2-for-1 siblings.
*still love brother – just not liking him all that much this morning
**also, I will change from 1st to 3rd person and back again with reckless abandon, because it is my blog, and I like it that way
