My brother and his wife arrived last night really late. Or, early this morning. Today, we were discussing the engagement and any wedding plans in the works.
A short time later, I said to my brother "So, will you stand up for me?" He stared at me in disbelief and with a confused look on his face, he asked "Why?"
I couldn't figure it out. I thought he would be a little more enthused about the request. Trying to play it cool, I said "Because I want you to."
He continued to look confused for quite some time. After a lengthy pause, he sighed deeply and slowly rose to his feet.
I had to laugh and explain I wanted him to stand up for me at the wedding. To be fair to him, no one else in the room could figure out why I wanted him off the couch.
