At 15, my younger brother is at the peak of puberty and he has been eliciting weird behavior in the past few days. For one, he now always race towards the phone whenever it rings, compare that to a month ago where his ass would have been too heavy to move a muscle.
His mobile phone has been blaring beer jingles everytime he has a message alert, in which he has mastered the skill of texting message on his cellphone while dabbling buttons of his PS2 controller.
After days of being clueless, my sister tells me of a vital classified information.
“Do you think our little brother has a girlfriend?”
I have no idea that he is starting to explore the wonders of adolescence, and my sister have proof:
She received a phone call from a girl looking for our brother. When she called our brother he suddenly got up from his bed and grabbed the phone in an instant.
He changed his mobile phone service from Smart to Globe. He said he wanted to text his friends cheaply since they are all, including his “girlfriend,” using Globe Pre-paid.
And EXHIBIT C:
When my sister once teased our little brother that he has girlfriend, he became defensive. “Stop it,” he would yell at her.
After concluding that our brother “could probably” have a girlfriend, that only means one thing: I am the only one in the brood of four who is currently unattached.
Gasp! I’m an endangered specie!
Kidding aside, my sister and I become obeservant of our brother’s behavior behind his back. I would liketo regard it as contingency procedure just in case something goes wrong.
One morning, our brother goes out for a weekend with friends. He returned early in the evening and we ask him what takes him so long. He says that he spends the day in his friends house watching DVDs.
My sister suspects that he probably goes out on a date with his girlfriend. They watch movies and probably dine out at a fastfood restaurant.
I suspect that he and his friends watch porn.
