Attention readers. Though I’m usually writing about being a benefit auctioneer Virginia, today’s blog is personal.
(Click to another blog to read auction tips.)
Once a year, my brother Scott makes the trek from Iowa to D.C. to attend a work conference.
It’s always in May. It’s always in the city. And it always means he and I get some enjoy some cool sibling time at a fun restaurant.
Today is my brother’s birthday. Like many people with December birthdays, I think he’s gotten the shaft when it comes to gifts and birthday parties.
So today (with his permission), I thought I’d plaster his face on the blog and wish him a public “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”
Scott and I share the same vocal patterns, same gestures, and generally sound similar. Our laugh is similar. Our sense of humor is similar. If someone spends time around us, it becomes clear we were raised in the same family.
One of Scott’s college friends lived with me in D.C. during an internship. “It’s so weird to talk with you, Sherry,” he would say, “I feel like I’m talking to the female version of Scott. Or Scott …. in drag.”
For a visual element on this blog, I decided to share some of the dinner photos from our annual get-togethers.
Enjoy your day, Scott!
And I hope the next year is filled with more laughter, love, and personal accomplishments.
