My brother and I were talking over the weekend when he mentioned that he recently got in touch with one of his friends from way back. The guy used to live across the street from us.
He was a good guy. He and my bro used to be tight.
Thats why I was surprised one day, back then, when he told me to do my best to NOT be like my brother. I just laughed it off and said OK.
I laughed it off because I lived to be like my brother. He was my role model! He had the girls, he and his friends threw the best summer parties, and he was laid-back & cool - didnt talk much. Meanwhile in school, 3 of my teachers that knew my bro never missed a chance to tell me how I needed to me more like my bro, academically (I had my slacker days).
What's the worst advice you've ever been given?
