When I first started school, I had no friends. I was the weird kid who sat by himself and read books during recess and painted strangely detailed landscapes (watching bob ross was my crack the way that normal kids took to Barney or whatever) during art class while the other kids ate paste. I wasn’t normal and I had no idea how to interact with the other kids because the other kids all seemed like fucking morons!

I met you on my first day of school, after having switched schools and being placed a grade ahead. You were all smiles and confidence (so really nothing much has changed on that front), you grabbed my hand, introduced yourself, and then proceeded to drag me all around the playground of my new school. From that moment, 21 years of brotherhood happened.

You taught me how to be a kid. You gave me the confidence to go out and make other friends. You got me to smile when nobody else could. You saved my life over and over again. You are my hero, my role model, my mentor, and my best friend. You are my big brother and I love you.

Tomorrow morning I am going to ask you to be my best man, and I am going to do my best to get the words out without crying. With you there by my side taking care of me like you have always done, I know I can do anything. Why the fuck am I so nervous right?

You and Tyler are lucky to have each other. This almost sounds like a love letter. It must be amazing to have such intimacy with a friend.
