My brother Ted visited!

My only biological sibling Ted, a firefighter and EMT, lives in Ohio, but we’re rarely able to see each other in person. It’s been a few years since the last time. And strange though it sounds in these high tech times, it’s been challenging for us to interact virtually, especially by voice. So it was wonderful that he had to visit Barrington, Rhode Island (a suburb of Providence, an hour from Boston) for work, and we were able to see each other. It was even the week between our birthdays. Happy 29th birthday, Brother!

Click here for my Picasa Web Album. I know, each image looks like a bad photoshop of at least two photos! I’m 5’6” and Ted is 6’5”. Though we were born three years apart, we share most expressed genes, and until his puberty were often mistaken for identical or fraternal twins. However, I’m female and he’s male, and there’s acromegaly in our father’s family (popularly called “giantism” or “gigantism”).

I regret to inform the rest of you that he only desires romantic relationships with women. Interested parties of that persuasion, email me your CV and we’ll consider you.
