I have always called my brother "pal." Joe, you didn't think I'd let this pal-themed week come to a close without a shout-out to you?
A few key things about my brother/pal Joe.
a) He is newly married.
b) It is his wife Megan's birthday this Sunday. Happy Joyous Birthday, new awesome sister-in-law/wife-of-pal!
c) Joe made an appearance in my book "Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life." He was such a good sport about letting me share a classic, family story involving him and a, uh, towel. Here's the excerpt. (one sentence long)
And to all you pals of Mission Amy K.R, thanks for a wonderful week.
