party on

  • The adorable stud in the pirate hat is my little brother, Mike. He is a raging enthusiast and a lover of life, tennis, and bread. His moves on the dance floor can make even the shyest man want to kick up his feet and join the party. He is my biggest fan, and the first one to give me a hug when I come home. He has become famous for his rare ability of being able to talk to anyone of any age and make them feel blissfully important. My thoughtful, big hearted brother turns fifteen today. Happy birthday kiddo! Can't wait for fifteen more years of belly busters.

Always put a tie on. Always. It only takes an extra thirty seconds in the morning, and it’s always the smart move. Old-timers will think you’re an up-and-comer, young folks will know you mean business, and ladies will think you’re the kind of guy who might suddenly take them out to a decent restaurant. It’s always the smart move.
