Happy Birthday, Christoph

Today is my brother's 44th birthday. That would make him 11 years older than me. But he had to go when he was 37, and I am now 32. I am not quite ready to catch up with him yet.

When I was teeny, he would take me everywhere with him. I remember being in Frankfurt on the handlebars of his bike as he pedaled through the neighborhood. He even took me rollerskating with him and his friends, though he had pom-poms on his skates, and I didn't.

As we got older, we became even better friends. He had the rockin' pad and allowed me to bring all my pals over for a party. He took me hang-gliding. Well, he glided and I crashed. But it was fun.

We looked alike. I don't look like anyone else in my family.

I am having the hardest time remembering him. Certain smells, or lights hit me and and I am thrown back into a time where he was, but only so very briefly.

Happy Birthday, Christoph! You better be partying up hard with a ton of babes and all that.

Happy Birthday Christoph. I always think back to the pic where we're all surrounding him and he's this sweet picture of a satisfied pimp in the middle of us. Why didn't I see the resemblence between you two before this picture?

I almost posted that picture. He looks scared, but can you blame him, being surrounded by all these bloodthirsty tramps? :)
We look crazy alike in this photo. It was my other brother's birthday and we were at Red Lobster, I think. Look at my sweet jeans. They go real highhh.
