Sibling Revelry

“What a lovely creature!”

“Leave her alone. And she’s not a creature. She’s Sandra.”


“Dammit. Stay away from her!”

“The heart makes its own choices, dude. You know that.”

“I hate you.”


“Hi Babe. This is my brother, Josh.”

“Hi. I’ve heard a lot about you.”

“Uh oh.” Josh bent over Sandra’s hand and kissed it. A charming pink flushed upward from Sandra’s fingers to her forehead.

“Shit,” muttered Tony.

“What’s wrong?” Sandra asked.

“My brother.”

“He’s charming!”

“Exactly. He’s charming. He’s handsome. He’s smart. He’s rich. He’s sophisticated. He’s well-traveled. Whatever.” Tony turned and walked out of the room.

“What’s up with him?” asked Josh.


“No. Not jealousy. Envy. He wishes he were me. It’s always been that way.”

“I think this is jealousy. He’s afraid you’re going to steal my love away from him.”

“You’re right. Wow, Sandra, you’re amazing. Not only beautiful but clearly a master of the fine distinctions in word meanings. Do me. Now.”

“No. I’m going to go find Tony. Go find another hand to kiss.”
