House Of Clowns
I usually post stories about our youngest here. But I can't deny our other two sons. They crack me up too.
So, they are teaching economics in the 2nd grade now. The little man had to "apply" for a classroom job. He really wanted the position of board eraser. Along with his application, he was to turn in two letters of recommendation. Our neighbor wrote one and his big brother offered to write the other...
To whom it may concern,
I am pleased to write to you my recommendation for one LB (little brother.) He is an ambitious wunderkind who has caught my attention for his adventurism, steadfast reliability, and unflagging determination.
LB is a dynamic figure, whose actions often defy explanation or definition. The common man cannot comprehend him, because he is uncommon- a rare type of person, if you will. One often reserved for fantasy and fiction. To fetter his ambitions with mere prose is an insult that I, out of fear of speedy reprisal, dare not inflict upon him.
I have seen LB catch salamanders with catlike speed; he has beaten his favorite video games dozens of times, and he has stayed up past midnight. He can cook a meal of chicken parmigiana for two, and he can eat them both. LB has survived falls (nay, jumps) of over twenty feet. He has entered multiple time zones, as well. When LB was young, he would put hot sauce on his pacifier(he can distinguish between habanero, jalapeno and poblano.) And he has done all of these things...before they were cool.
Among all of these diverse exploits, it becomes clear that LB is the ideal candidate for all manner of labors and services. To LB, a job description is no mere list of required duties; it is a canvas, and LB is an artist...connoisseur...revolutionary. It is for these reasons I grant LB my utmost confidence, pride and recommendation.
BB (big brother)
