Uncle Jesse. He may or may not know this, but I look up to him…alot. I honestly think he is one of the coolest uncle’s I will ever have. He is always in the loop.
A new song comes out, he knows it. And he shares this knowledge with me. I occasionally pass it on to a friend or two and within a moth, it is the most played song on the radio. I have no idea where he gets this information, probably one of his many buddies.
It’s always my buddy Chip or Justin or Bomani. What do you have to do to be Jesse’s “buddy”? I don’t know. But I do know he has over 1,000 facebook friends. That is a lot of people.
He knows everyone. Also, I look up to his musicality. I used to take piano, but Jesse says he never really had official lessons, but he can hear a song once and play it almost perfectly. He sits down at the piano (except Tuesdays, that’s basketball night) for about 20 minutes every day. Half the time I have no idea what the song is, but I still seem to really enjoy his loud semi-annoying singing which I can hear very clearly from my room. He gets one song in his head for like a week and then only plays that one song, so by the end of the week I also know a new song.
Jesse also has a lot of flaws, but I will save those for another post as I don’t want to ruin this one.
He is a big part if my life. Home, church, and as of recently school. He has been subbing a lot in different classes and he is also the track coach. We argue, and mess with each other, but I know, and I hope he knows, that I love him and always will.
50% of the time he seems like a little brother. The other half he is like a second dad. We go places as a family, me, dad, Steph, Michelle and Jesse and often we get stares from passersby. We don’t look like a normal family. One old guy, one middle aged guy, a teenager, two kids and no mom. A little confusing, but we are a family no matter how weird we are. He has been a huge help through these hard times and I couldn’t have done it with out him. Thanks Uncle Jesse.
