Brotherly Love Is Footloose

| CT, USA | Siblings

(My brother and I work at the same office, in cubicles bordering each other.)

Brother: “Hey, what size shoes do you wear?”

Me: “Between 12-13 depending on who makes them. Why?”

Brother: “No reason.”

Me: “It worries me when you ask personal questions and don’t say why.”

Brother: “Fine. I was planning on cutting off your feet and attaching metal prosthetics and wanted to make sure I got the sizes right.”

Me: *pause* “…alright.”
