We all have that one eccentric relative who always says and does the strangest things. In your family, who’s that person, and what is it that earned him/her that reputation?
My cousin Phil. He is the weird and the crazy one. We grew up together; he will get in trouble not only in school but around the neighborhood. My aunt will be furious at him for the reason that he wasn’t afraid to climb the tallest trees and try to jump (he will say it was a stunt for a wrestling match), he will eat worms, rocks, sand, dirt, bugs.
The girls would love him anyway. They thought he was cute, sensitive, and charming. As a teenager, he was overweight, red hair, freckles, and green eyes. They call him” Red” and they still do.
He was the favorite of my mom, my grandma, and also mine. With time we all moved away it’s not until two years ago when I have the chance to visit him. After a long 30 years, we hug, we cry, and we bring back all the memories. My cousin Phil looks the same, well looks older, but the same charming man.
A little craziness is not as bad as its looks. He is a charming and a hilarious man. My cousin Phil can be the clown of the family and the weirdo, but he’s always there for everyone.
Love you, Phil you’re the best.
