Another brother gone...
My latest brother is going to Vancouver, to join my other brother and my only sister, who are already there. I'm pretty bummed out about it, since I don't really hang out with anyone else.
Who am I going to call when I want to go see a show or go for a Sunday brunch? Who else will discuss the Socratic exchanges between Flava Flav and Chuck D with me over sausages? Who will listen to me go on about how I would write Batman between mouthfuls of potato salad? Woe is moi.
The good news is, he's only going for the summer. The plan is to come back to Regina to finish his degree in the fall. Whatever. A lot can happen over a summer in B.C. I should know. I've read a lot of books. I don't begrudge him going, honest I don't, but it sure is getting lonely out here on the prairie.
