Prompt 380

WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
Everything my brother ever told me… well, most of everything. There are a couple of instances where his advice wasn’t the best of suggestions, but we’re just going to ignore those ones.

Although, we’re twins, Adam always acted a lot older than he was, a lot older than me by decades. I was like the younger brother in the family—even though I was born before him. He was the responsible one; he was the first to leave the bird nest, the first to buy his own house, even started his own business. All I wanted in life was to skate, occasionally go surfing and eat corn flakes. I didn’t care about taking care of business, didn’t want to, but when I finally had to “grow up” Adam was by my side both showing and telling me how to do it. Even though he’s gone, I still take his advice to heart and try to live by what he’s given me.
