My brother and I grew up on a farm.
- We didn’t have a lot of opportunities growing up, but both of us found a way to thrive.
I learned a trade and have my own business. My brother joined the military and served for six years before he got out. He works odd jobs now and comes to visit once or twice every year.When my brother needed a place to stay for a few days, I agreed to let him stay at my apartment. My brother usually stays with my mom and dad when he comes to visit, but they were remodeling the guest room when my brother came to town unexpectedly. I agreed to let my brother stay with me. My girlfriend wasn’t particularly happy since I didn’t consult with her first, but she got over it quickly. My brother is a funny and charismatic guy. We had a ton of fun while he was visiting and we even went to a rock concert and dive bar. My brother decided to thank me for my hospitality by purchasing a portable AC unit for my house. My brother likes the indoor temperatures very cold. He purchased the portable AC unit to keep in the guest room. When he went home at the end of three weeks, he told us to keep the portable AC unit. My brother paid almost $300 for the machine. I tried to protest, but my brother insisted that we keep the AC unit. I really hope he will stay with us again, when he comes to visit for a few weeks.
