My brother hasn’t spoken to me since the summer when my parents found out about this blog. He accused me of “throwing everyone under the bus.” These were harsh words coming from someone who I took under my wing since he was born and I was an eleven year old big sister.
I recently sent him an email to try to repair things or get the conversation going. But no reply. It’s weird how things change. How a family member you’re so close to becomes a stranger. Not everyone gets my comedy. How unfortunate he couldn’t have been one who did.
We made a film together a few years ago. Somewhat based on true events, it’s about a lonely outsider who rediscovers his self-esteem through Salsa dancing. I practically forced him to do the film. He wound up feeling like a star.
