OMG, is this what I think this is?!

One of the most hilarious & annoying things about being 'mixed'
You know when you have to call a repair man to fix something in your house? Well ever since I was like 16/17….pretty much the age I was when I finally grew to be taller then my mom; I felt like as soon as the repairman looked at me & then my white beautiful mom they always thought…..LESBIANS.
Lol….but no, I’m being dead serious! Id say almost everytime i’d get this really disgusted judging vibe off the person but then as soon as my mom addresses me as her ‘daughter’, the vibe would instantly be gone.
However there have been a few times where the judging vibe got worst like they were thinking “eww that means she’s married to a black man…” or even worse then that the repairman would start trying to flirt with me.
This is why, over the years when I know there’s a repairman coming over I stay in my motherfucking room, lol.
This Geek Squad old man that’s here right is so into his work that he’s even barely engaging in conversation with my very nice conversating mom.
So thumbs up to this guys since I was in the kitchen eating when he walked in :-)
“Friendship is a two-way street. If you want people to be there for you, you have to be there for them as well. People will only take so much… One day they’ll tire of only mattering when you need something or when it benefits you. Just as there are some people in life you turn to when life gets hard, you might be that person for someone else. Remember that.”— Unknown

Today is my older brother, Darrell’s birthday. We never called him Darrell since he has the same name as my dad so we always called him Tee.
Tee would be turning 35 today, however 6 years ago (this December) he was killed in a car accident.
This fact still doesn’t feel like reality to me, so of course when I think about it, it rips me apart. I never got to spend much time with him growing up and just a few months before he died we were finally hanging out and getting to know each other better.
It just breaks my heart how big a kid he always was and how it seems to be the same way with the remaining Russell kids (me & my little brother). We would go to the movies all the time & he’d terrorize the staff because whenever would see him standing at 6’6 & 350+ pounds, they’d automatically think ‘football player’ and get star struck.
Which he was a football player and that’s what he was known for, but that wasn’t my brother. That was just his job and he’d have to ‘seem’ a certain way while doing his job, but that wasn’t who he was.
He was a big teddy bear, a HUGE kid at heart. He loved playing video games, going to amusement parks and more importantly movies. That’s pretty much how me & Travis are as well.
I really hate how I’ll never be able to make more hilarious memories with him. Like the one time my friends & I went to a Feable Weiner concert and like always I went to leave and he asked where I was going. I told him where and he rolled my eyes at me like it was the stupidest sounding band, you know the typical Big Brother job at making everything you’re doing sound stupid……yea he ended up going with us.
So imagine this 6’6 HUGE guy walking into this small ass concert/bar venue to see some pop/rock type of show where there’s MAYBE 50 people there. Yea talking about getting stared at the entire time and the best part was he looked extremely bored the entire time, haha.
Long story short, Feable Weiner came on and started playing a new song which was pretty much how Football Sucks. I can’t even begin to tell you how hard I was laughing during the song and watching Tee who still hasn’t changed his ‘bored look’ through it all.
Afterwards I went to go talk to the band I told them how there actually was a football player in the crowd when they played that song and introduced them to my brother. Instant friendship……..afterwards we went to Denny’s and all I remember is Tee telling us about this show/movie he saw with the funniest scene in it. He was laughing so hard that it took him almost 10 minutes just to explain it to us.
That memory sticks out for me alot, because it’s the only time I can remember him laughing that hard while hanging out with me and no one else. So it always made me feel like we were finally getting close and that he could finally be himself around me.
Being the only girl and the middle child of my siblings, you tend to think your older sibling doesn’t want anything to do with you because you’re not ‘cool enough’ and the little brother won’t leave you alone because they wanted to be just like you. So yea that memory means alot to me.
I have a few other great memories with him that last year of his life, as well as a few when we were younger, but the one memory I really wish I had with him, is celebrating one of his birthdays with him :(
I know I’m rambling, but I can’t help it, I just miss my brother and wish he was still here. He SHOULD be here *sigh*
Tee, I miss you so much and wish you were here enjoying all these new comic book super hero movies, because I know you would.
Also I find it quite epic that tonight is Game 7 of the NHL Eastern Conference Finals and it’s your birthday. Mainly because the last time the Lightning was this far along in the playoffs you were here & they ended up winning the cup.
I’ll be watching the game tonight wishing you were here watching it with me yelling at the players mispronouncing their names on purpose.
