I’m proud to have my older brother Doug as one of my best men.  Growing up we were only a grade apart, so we’ve always been close.  However, it wasn’t until sharing a studio apartment after graduation that we got really close.  Actually it was me, Dougie, Marisa, and the bride-to-be in the small Upper West Side apartment. The arrangement lasted nine months before Amanda and I fled to Brooklyn.

It’s not that I miss our special time together, but in spite of all the fighting, privacy issues, and conflicting sleep schedules, I look back back on it fondly.  This one night, Amanda and I woke up to Dougie standing ON the foot of our bed, rifling through our closet to find a cable for his MiniDisc player.  MiniDisc!! If you haven’t heard of MiniDisc, that’s because they stopped making them in 1997.  Why would he need it at 3am??! Ahh, but I digress…

At the end of it all, the four of us are closer for the shared experinece — and I wouldn’t give that back for all the so-called “personal space” in the world.  Thanks for being my Best man, you always were and always will be.

I think my true feelings would be better expressed through a Chariots of Fire Photo Montage.  Enjoy!

“He ain’t heavy; He’s my brother.”
