    The joke is that Mom slept with the UPS driver. We all know that’s not true, but me and my two siblings could not be any more different. I’m the oldest, next is two years younger, and the last is seven years younger. All boys. If you look at characteristics from both sides of the family, one can easily see we are related. But put us in a line up, and there are absolutely no similar characteristics both in appearance or In interests.

    I have two biological brothers that I am aware of.

    First is a year older. Never met him. Grandparents forced my mother to give the baby up for adoption at birth. No records - despite grandparents being fastidious record keepers, even so much so that they kept all their love-letters to one another in a three ring binder, and had vehicle registration reciepts from the mid 1970's. My mother won't talk about my brother or the situation revolving around him, except to say the father is *not* who everyone claims he is. Working theory? My grandfather (her step dad) raped her and made her give up the baby, who was sold to people my grandparents knew, but who were not in their close circle of friends. It was 1980 - way easier to pull that shit off and claim home birth, than it would be today. No DNA tests, no massive computer databases.

    My younger brother is from another mother - we share a dad. He's half Mexican. He's a bit shorter (but still way tall for a Mexican at 6 feet) and has WAAAAY better hair and looks. He also is huge into NASCAR and football, while I could care less about team sportsball or dudes driving in left hand circles for four hours. We're both naturally introverted and suffer from procrastination, but the procrastination gene hit him way harder. He's also way more into cars, loves pickups and muscle cars, loud exhausts, has a Tim Taylor-esque facination with "more power" - meanwhile I spent about 16 years of my life working and moving cars and could give a shit about them, save for wanting something reliable (why I drive a Toyota and not a Chrysler product) and comfortable.

    I'm still getting to know my lil bro honestly. We're so far apart in age - I'm 3 months shy of 41, he just turned 20 at the end of January - there is not a whole hell of a lot of common ground yet.

    My brothers are 4 and 8 years older. Compared to all other people we are more similar to our Dad and each other, both physically and attitudinally. Not saying we don't have differences, but I think those are more the result of circumstance than genetics.
