My lol moment with my brother
Tuesday, October 09, 2018
My brother is one who has teased me something awful all his life. Of my two brothers he’s only three years younger than me. He drove me crazy growing up but I love both my brothers so much. I cherish the moments we share together especially now that we live in three different states. My youngest brother devoted his life to caring for our Dad who passed away after living with Alzheimer’s for about eight years. It’s wonderful seeing him enjoying his life now.
Back to brother #1. He’s my travel buddy. He makes all these trips possible. While he doesn’t have a clue what all my health issues do to me, he is a quadruple bypass surgery survivor.
Anyway we were at the beach and I was going on the beach for a walk so I asked him to put sunscreen on my neck and upper part of my back. Well, with my 70 pound weight loss I have the dreaded batwing upper arms. I had been working on that with my limited upper body workout at the gym. So he’s always called that area my mud flaps. So he said he’d put sunscreen on my mud flaps. When he did he said “wow, you’re mud flaps are firming up”. Needless to say that made my day. He actually noticed my hard work, lol.
I just had to share my laugh. Compliments come in all sorts of strange ways. I’m taking that one for the books, lol.
What has been your strangest or most offhand compliments on your journey? I’d love to hear your stories.
