Adam bring it on.

My youngest brother (I have 4) always ends every email with "my life is better than your vacation". He is making me crazy with that line. Even after my Wengen, Switzerland post he still holds strong to his word.
He sent me an email with a link to this video thinking his weekend was better than mine. Seriously Adam are you kidding me, beat this....
$1.99 pitcher of root beer with fancy paper cupsbowling at the Naval base
bumper bowling at that
and being a woman walking around announcing to everyone I wear a size 10 shoe.

Seriously - you think your first day trying to learn how to ski can beat that.

HA! His line is cracking me up. And it would make me crazy if he was my brother!

Jill said...

That is such a great line, though I would never claim that about my life.

katherine said...

ha,ha,ha. Little brothers are great aren't they (I've got 5 myself). Who can beat bumper bowling for sure!

carlo said...

oh little brothers...the things they think up

Holly said...

I think he might be jealous of your shoes.

I wish i had that positive frame of mind all the time...my first year teaching middle school (ugh!) I worked with a guy who walked into the building every morning saying "Happy to be here!" and he meant it! I have always struggled to be more like that! I think i need to steal your brother's line as a mantra....

Size 10 bowling shoes...That would be me too!! SOmetimes I can get a 9 or 9 1/2 if they run big!

I got my Good Mail from you today! I was hoping mine was in the cool pasta box..yeah me!! Thanks so much of thinking of me!! That polka dot ribbon is going on a hooded towel later today!

My son Oscar just asked me this morning if we could go bowling sometime...typically our kids tend to win all of the games. I call it the bumper advantage. ;0)

You need to come up with an equally self-afirming tagline for all your emails to him, Kristi!

I watched Adam's video clip. I kept expecting him to leap off a cliff edge and launch a Union Jack parachute, a la 'The Spy Who Loved Me'. You can't beat a ski-ing stunt like that!

Yipes, do they really have to make the sizes so blatant on the shoes?

Chanel said...

I would take bowling and root beer over skiing any day!

I say you win!

Chanel said...

Oh ya, as for the shoes... I think any women that is a perfect 10 should advertise it.

OOOHH BRING IT ON! This weekend is it, sis! ps. blogettes (i just came up with that, oh how clever!) i am the famous little brother.

Heres the deal, Come Monday morning Feb. 11th you have to have a post that basically kills it covering your weekend warriorism.

You have all of Saturday to use, there has to be one Video and a couple pics with write-ups.

PS. its my bday on Saturday and Im' gonna rule it, so get ready for some serious throw down!

Winner gets to change their profile name to Weekend Warrior for a whole week. Then the following week all the blogettes can join in.

What do you say sis? Scared? Better postpone your appointment for the foot doctor.

So funny Kristi! I'd for sure take your weekend over skiing. That's for wimps. My little brother has made me crazy countless times. And usually I'm laughing when it happens.

Lauralee said...

too funny.. little brothers.. nice that he loves his life so much!! that is pretty cool..
I wear size 10 and sometimes 11.. so I empathize with that... (since I was in the 8th grade!)

Elizabeth said...

I wear a size ten too.

Amy said...

Very funny! I love his motto; I may steal it!

Oh, and your weekend totally rocked over mine!

Liz said...

This is so hilarious! He definitely has a pretty nice life, but who can beat the fab day you had??!!

So, when you write an email to him sign your name, put a comma and write, "Mom's favorite child."

That should do it.

Root beer and bowling. Mmmm, that is going to be a tough one to beat!
