My brothers birthday parties are pretty much a circus of drama. It’s the worst possible environment you would want to be in, but strangely there had to be at least sixty people there at one point. It was the definition of a “house party” It was loud, it was over-crowded, there was marijuana smoking and alcohol, there were people going to the bathroom in groups and I am pretty sure there was hooking up. The police were called on us twice for noise complaints but when we moved the people from out in front of the house into the house and back there wasn’t much the neighbors could say. When I say Circus, people were dressed in drag and guys wearing skirts, and yes there were actual little people.
Most of the night I spent on the dance floor and letting very handsome men & women (I think) bring me drinks. There is a certain halo effect being the birthday boys younger brother. I talked to several straight guys who were there, the funniest one who literally said, “this is not my type of crowd” and it’s “totally not my scene” the others balked and complained and talked about if anyone touched them they wouldn’t stand for it.. but these same fellas had to be thrown out at 4:00am when the party was over. I found that ironic and typical. I mean my brothers bi-sexuality is the worst kept secret of all kept secrets what would you expect at his birthday party.
I have to admit I have always admired my brother. He has never taken the safe road. and he’s always grabbed life by the horns and just held on and ended up wherever he ended up. I know that earlier in my life I took a lot of safe responsible choices, some I regret, some I don’t.. I am a firm believer in you learn from every experience. Jay & Georgie (btw I saw you in the corner with that Spanish guy!) were there as well and since they will read this I want to make sure I give them a shout-out! And thanks Jay for always having my back and making sure I got home safe, I owe you my life as always.
It’s good to let your hair down once in a while.. and I got to do that last night. Thanks Bro.. and Happy Birthday!
