Hey Little Brother...

I love my brother, Caleb.

Starting two days ago, my birthday presents began arriving. And, as in keeping with tradition, my brother sent me a DVD. But not just any DVD, he sent me Mac and Me. Perhaps some backstory is needed...

My brother loves movies as much as, if not more than, I do. I once counted his VHS tapes (this was back in the late nineties, mind you) and he had over 400. I finally convinced (read as: forced) him to make the switch to DVD two Christmases ago. Anyway, after visiting me in San Diego two years ago, he made a list of all of the DVDs I have that he doesn't and starting getting them. Somehwere along the way, I think that he decided to return the favor.

So, for the past year and a half, Caleb has bought me his favorite movies on DVD everytime we give each other gifts. First it was Ernest Scared Stupid, then Ernest Saves Christmas, and now, Mac and Me...

Editor's Note: I would just like to say that, while I do love Ernest movies, Mac and Me's aliens creep me out. Majorly...

This is one of the many reasons why I love my brother. Not on that list: the time he bit me in the foot at our great aunt's house...
