It Got Me Thinking

Well, I've just realised something. It's been 17 years since I've been a member of this great world. I've got a great family, great dad, great mum and a great brother. Friends who are loyal...(though some just like to stab me right in the back. 'Thanks' a lot guys.) But what really intrigued me was my brother. I've known him for 15 years. We eat together, go to school together, hell we even sleep in the same room together (don't get the wrong impression or I'll gut you like the other 10 idiots I gutted....oops... that wasn't suppose to come out loud.)

But yet, we are like totally opposite people. I mean, we see some siblings who do nearly everything to mimic one another. For example, same dressing style, same eating habits, same hobbies. But I'm sad to say that that is not one of the finer points we share. We're as close as opposites as anyone can be. And it's rather clear. For example,

I like Need For Speed while he likes FIFA.
I like my noodles dry, he likes it with soup.
I like Nickelback, he likes Michaell Jackson.
I like cars and guns, he likes football.
I like inventing, he likes reasearching.
I like to joke, he likes it serious.
I favour war, he favours peace.
I demand rights, he doesn't give a damn.
I'm into politics, he's into current affairs.
I prefer formal, he prefers casual.
I know nuts about computers, he knows everything about them.

and the list goes on.....

It really got me thinking. But I just realised the matter is not on how different we are from one another but the fact that we are united in synchrony and harmony. What I'm trying to say is that we are of the same family, of the same blood and of the same personality. Though we might not show it but I know that we are alike in one way or another.

So no matter what happens, no matter when it happens and no matter how it happens, I'll always be here for you. You'll always be my brother, no matter what anyone says. And if anyone tries to drive a wedge in between us, pay no heed to it. (until I kill him with a toothpick.... seriously bro, I can do that).

I've said it once and I'll say it again. Brothers 4 Life.

Guess which one is mine and which is his.
