My brother is visiting



Jimmy had Billy. Jackie had the gals in "Grey Gardens." I have Rich.

My older brother, who is my polar opposite, is visiting for three days while he is in New York trying out for the game show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire." He is currently home on my couch enjoying a fitful, apnea afflicted bout of sleep while I am in the office trying to earn a living.

I do want to be a loyal family member, but it is difficult for me to spend time with a relative whose every life choice involves feats of buffoonery that would make Bozo the Clown hang his head in shame and resolve to try harder. My brother possesses the same sense of decorum our Creator bestowed upon the Keystone Kops, not to mention the common sense God gave a cantaloupe.

I will spare you, my gentle readers, the unsavory details of the vulgar indignities my brother has inflicted on us lately. I suppose this entry is merely a call for your good wishes, which George and I can surely use until such time as Rich returns to his cave.

Sigh.

Hey, CP, you need to get Rich to guest-blog.

To cheer you up, check out the new feature on my blog, Video of the Day. If that doesn't work, just wait and tolerate. At least your brother isn't "perfect" like mine.

Well, at least you'll get some good stories out of it.

If he turns out to make you rich, that's a whole different thing but for now, suffer. Sigh.

Well, the Millionaire audition is officially over now. We're sending him home tomorrow, but he said he'd never forget our hospitality. Of course, his forgetting it is just another six pack away.

Did he take a date to the audition?

Brother Rich was a perfect gentleman while under our care. Yes he snores like a large litter of bulldogs, but so does the CP (though he lives in complete D-Nile of this). Siblings are damned if they are perfect and damned if they are perfectly imperfect, mine are the infuriating combination of both!

God bless you, St. Georgie, for dealing with the Rich situation.
