My brother has left, his vacation with me is over, and I am bereft. But it’s probably a good thing that he left or I may be dead.

Allow me to explain.

As you all know, my brother lives in Alaska and scenery is king there. A trip to visit me in Washington state means I don’t have a lot of options on things to amaze him with. I’ve got mountains, his are better. I’ve got ample wildlife, he has more. So honestly, the only thing I had for this kid were casinos and food.

I did great at the casinos. I was ahead and loving life. It was the food that tried to kill me. Things were going great, until Friday night. We decided to return to a restaurant we had already been to and I ordered with gusto.

I love that gusto sounds like fatso, it kind of elevates my status when I tell a story involving too much food.

By 5am on Saturday morning I had given up the fight. I stopped counting the number of times I vomited when I reached 24. I asked my brother to kill me, he wanted to so many times in our youth, but as an adult I guess prison doesn’t look as good. He declined and bought me medicine.

I thought my brother had surely matured and was officially an adult.

Then he abandoned me to go to a casino. In all honesty though, I would have done the same thing.

Siblings are the best!!

  1. 😩 Are you better??
    Are you sure your brother didn’t put something in your food to pull you away from the casino so he’d win more than you?
    Brothers are sneaky…

    1. I am feeling better, though it took two days before I got the courage to eat a real meal. He may have snuck something in my food… But if he did, it backfired. He went to the casino alone and lost all his money. At least when I went with him he walked out with some of his money!
