If there is anyone in the world who is messier than Taylor Brand, I'd sure like to meet that person. To tell the truth though, I don't think that person exists. And I should know because I have the misfortune to call Taylor Brand my brother. I don't want to give you the idea that I don't love him; I do. But that doesn't mean I have to like his habits. And that's especially true when you consider that I'm the one who has had to share a bedroom with the messy little weasel ever since he outgrew his crib. Why in the world my mom and dad would let him get away with being so messy for so long is beyond me. It seems like no matter what I say, they just smile and say that maybe I need to set a better example.
