Happy New Year

It's 2010 already! Robert ushered in the new year a bit early -- I woke up to my cell phone vibrating on New Year's Eve. That's "eve" not "day." December 31.

Caller ID showed the call was from Rob; my alarm clock showed it was only 6:00 a.m. My mind immediately went to "the nurses found him unresponsive in his room" and are calling to tell me to meet him at the hospital. (yes, that's me being a bit overdramatic). However, with Rob, sometimes you never know.

I answered, bracing myself for the worst, and was greeted with a robust "Happy New Year!" I didn't have the heart to tell Rob he was 18 hours early but for all I know, he was watching television broadcast the New Year dawning in some far away corner of the world. I wished him a Happy New Year back, said goodbye and laid in bed tickled that he was so happy this early in the morning.

Happy New Year, little brother. Happy New Year.
