Just to continue a theme that seems to have developed over the past few posts. It is simply not fair that your older brother has his birthday six days before yours. Particularly when you’re the one who gets really excited about these things, and you’ve been counting down the days for weeks. Those six days of anticipation are sheer torture and it becomes so difficult to sit still and concentrate on anything! It’s the same every year of course and I do hope that the excitement continues for a few more years.
Once the birthday and its inevitable anticlimax is over we’ll be counting the days to Halloween and planning guising costumes, then the days until Christmas. It’s a good thing there’s always something to look forward to!
