The Good 'Ol Boy
Things they have in common How they differ
Over six feet tall Everything else
Over fifty years old
They are older than me
I am posting this on F.B.'s birthday. It is very important that I do so... because then he will know that I did not forget, or get the date wrong. G.O.B.'s birthday was nearly two months ago. I didn't call, even though I thought good thoughts his way all day. I have not called him on his birthday more than once or twice. He probably wouldn't even remember his birthday, except he still lives with our parents, and I'm pretty sure Mom made him a cake.
F.B. - who lives alone - would probably appreciate a cake, but he will have to settle for a call...
For years and years (and maybe even still) I did not remember their birthdays correctly. G.O.B. is sandwiched in between our two married brothers, one older and one younger. At least, I think he is - all three of their birthdays are in row a week before my own and I can never keep them straight. And for some odd reason I always remember F.B.'s as a day later than it actually is.
But not this year!
I am writing this early, so that I can post on exactly the right day. Which is tomorrow... I think...
Anyhow, Happy Birthday - belated and otherwise - to my Bachelor Brothers!
I'm glad you're mine....
