A Brother’s Rebuttal

Have you read my sister's blog?  I just found it online, under the oh-so-creative title "Abby's Blog" and I feel the need to set the record straight:

I do NOT carry my "stupid toy guitar" around "all the time."  Just in the morning when I'm feeling particularly creative.  And late at night when the freshman blues hit me hard.  That's when I write my best songs.  Abby only hears the goofy ones I sing when I'm messing around or just want to torture her.  (I am her younger brother, after all.  It's in my contract.)  But I really do want to be a singer/songwriter/recording artist/major rock star, and right now that guitar is the only thing I have that makes me feel like I'm getting close.

Someday I'll be old enough to get a job and make some bank for the axe of my dreams.  Until then, I'll proudly bear the name of "Duffus and his Toy Guitar Band."

Hey...great idea, Abs.  I think I'll start a band!

The Best Wish List

Guess what?!  I've just been given my best assignment EVER!  A girl named Abby Jensen has made a wish list!

Not just any wish list.  It's 16 Wishes she wants to come true all on one day:  her 16th Birthday.  I haven't seen the list yet, so I don't exactly know what kind of a ride we're in for, but I can't WAIT for Abby's Birthday Morning so I can get started!

Sometimes I get someone's birthday wish in advance.  That's fun too, since it gives me time to plan.  But Abby's Wish List is a mystery.  She keeps it in her closet, so I'm assuming no one's ever seen it.  Well, maybe her little brother Mike.  He's always invading her privacy, coming in without knocking, that kind of thing.  Or maybe she's shown the list to Jay Kepler, her best friend.

Anyhoo, that's stage one:  I have to get a good look at that list without Abby knowing, which means I need to get her out of her room - preferably out of her house.  Planning that stage will give me a little something to scheme about, but not in an evil way, of course.  Now that I'm on the case, everything that happens on Abby's 16th Birthday is going to happen for a reason.

Goodness, this going to be fun!

I am Switzerland

When I was a freshman, everybody tried to tell me the importance of immediately picking my "clique."  For the those of you not yet in High School, it's pronounced "click" and it means a group or set of people with a common interest.  Our first day of freshman year, Abby and I identified some of most obvious cliques:

The Athletes

The Fashionistas

The Band Geeks

The Brainiacs

Once you identify yourself with one of these groups, it's hard to switch.  So I decided to steer clear all together and develop friendships with everyone.  I have friends in band, friends in football, friends who play chess, friends who dance, friends who wouldn't be caught dead dancing...friends who should rethink a few of their favorite dance moves because of how ridiculous they look doing them (that means you, Abby).

I guess I'm just not interested in taking sides.  I like staying neutral.

Someday, that's all gonna pay off.

My Favorite Things

I like my bedroom.  It's the one space in the universe I get to fill with my favorite things.  Everything in my room means something to me -- except for some of the pink things.  When I was in fifth grade, I made the mistake of telling my mother I liked pink.  For about three years every gift from every friend, relative and total stranger was, y'know...really PINK.  Don't get me wrong, I like pink -- but let's not go crazy.  I mean, there's a whole rainbow out there!

Anyhoo, here are some of my favorite things:

my furry green pillow

a pic of me and Jay taken at my 7th birthday party

my dollhouse

my multiple posters of Joey Lockhart (swoon!)

a years' supply of my fave sugarfree gum

a pic of my beloved ex-cat, Mr. Tickles

my alarm clock I bought for fifty cents at a garage sale

my bunny slippers

Someday, I'll redecorate and my furry green pillow will go the way of the dodo.  But a few things will always go with me wherever I live.  They mean that much to me.

What do you have in your room that you'll always treasure?


Love you!

Abby

Jay’s 16 Wishes

Abby has this list of 16 Wishes she hopes will come true when she turns 16.  I'm only four months younger than her, so I started thinking it's time I came up with my own Wish List.

Here goes.  When I'm 16...

#1 - I'll have a cool car, preferably new, preferably fast.

#2 - I'll drive Abby around in my new, fast car.

#3 - I'll get courtside basketball tickets for me and Abby.

#4 - Maybe I'll try out for football.

#5 - Maybe Abby will come to a football game to watch me play instead of Logan.

#6 - I'll do something impressive and important, like...not sure yet.

#7 - I'll convince Principal Smith to put foosball tables in the lunchroom.

#8...

That's all I can think of right now.  Ideas?  Thoughts?  Commentary?

A little bit invisible

Freshman guys have it rough.  I'm not saying we're short, it's just that most of us haven't reached our "full height potential" yet.  Someday, most of us will tower over our big sisters and call them names we just learned in Shakespeare 1O1, like "acorn" and "minimus."

Until then, we have to endure being a little bit invisible. The girls at school are all beautiful creatures who step on us with their high heels at dances and look over our heads when we try to talk to them.

Then there are guys like Logan Buchanan.  He doesn't really say very much, but all the girls are crazy about him, including my sister Abby.  Personally, I think it's just because he's tall enough to look them in the eye.

So until I'm taller -- like next semester -- I'm just going to bide my time and perfect my rock star air of cool, casual confidence.


That's my plan and I'm stickin' to it.

Mike

I love my job

Being a Birthday Fairy has to be the best job in the world.  Well...maybe the second best.  The Big Guy in Red who lives at the North Pole has the most awesome job.  Think about it:  he gets to eat whatever he wants, he has a really cool uniform - I'd love to get my hands on those glam boots and that wide shiny belt - and he only works one day a year!

Birthday Fairies, on the other hand, are pretty much always on the job.  We speak dozens of languages and get to travel all over the world.  Oh boy, do I have the stories!  I've worked my Birthday List Magic on kings and queens, presidents and senators, ministers and prime ministers.  But my favorite birthdays are for people just like you.

Someday maybe I'll be assigned to your Birthday List.  Won't that be fun?

Until then, keep making those wishes and don't forget to write them down.  I think it's important to know what you want in life.  Who knows?  Maybe you won't need a Birthday Fairy.

You're smart, strong and beautiful.  Start making your own wishes come true!

Copy Cat

Dear Blog,

Today Abby Jensen came to school dressed exactly like me.  Actually, her outfit was a really cheap knockoff of mine and everybody totally knew that.   It must have been so humiliating for her.  Score!

I live to humiliate Abby Jensen so it's a real time-saver when she does it to herself.  She's been doing that a lot lately.  I think the closer we get to our 16th birthdays, the more desperate she is to enjoy it.

Last Tuesday in homeroom I heard her talking to Jay Kepler about how she wanted her 16th birthday to be -- and I quote -- "the best birthday in the history of 16th birthdays!"

Give me a break.  Her birthday is going to be totally forgettable.  Mine, however, will be so awesome some cable show will want to film it and launch my new TV career.

That will really drive Abby Jensen bonkers.  Score again!
