Anyways, I just got his new number from my mum, and don't you know he just yapped my ear off for 40 minutes. Told me all about work, his apartment, his girlfriend, some family drama, and how he was planning to surprise me for Thanksgiving this weekend, but probably can't do to work (what a sweetie - I would die if he showed up). I didn't say much - I just listened and let him go. Then he asks for my number and says he's going to start calling me every week.
Is this normal for a 19-year-old guy, to want to talk to his 29-year-old sister like this??
Funny stuff. I don't necessarily believe he'll actually call weekly, but just the fact that he said that made me a little mushy.
Actually, makes me think about doing a mini-comic with stories about my brothers and sister. I have a good one about Jon as a baby throwing up on me.....
So there's Jon. Last time I talked to my youngest brother Tom (17) he kept me on the phone for a good hour, same dynamic - he did most of the talking, I listened. Then a few weeks ago, I talk to my oldest brother Mac (32) and *he* gushes forth for a good hour about his upcoming wedding and job!
It's only something I've noticed recently, but what's with the boys lately? Everyone wants to spill their guts, it seems.
(All okay by me though. My brothers are cute.)
