Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants

Now That's What I Call Music! 18 album coverImage via Wikipedia

My youngest sibling, my brother, has reached the milestone he has craved for some time today! He celebrates his 18th birthday people so lock up your daughters! Momentum for this day has been building for a significant amount of time and to say that he has been excited this week would be an understatement. Being the youngest has many pros and cons, I only have to walk into his bedroom and be greeted by the high definition plasma television, video games systems, Sky HD and even a fridge to realise that being at the other end of the spectrum wasn't as rewarding.

Being the youngest though means that he's had to wait in the wings while we've been there, worn out the t-shirts and learnt how to walk and swagger. He's had to wait for his moment and now the stabilizers are being removed he will definitely spread his wings. This evening we're celebrating his birthday with a gathering at my parents. You're all invited; alcohol, drinking games, blow-up dolls, 63% abv rum, music and maybe MTV (maybe?! awaiting the call). I'm sure it will be a night to remember and I hope that it's everything that he has dreamed about and more because this, as we know, is where it all gets interesting!
