Marketing Genius is a series created by BuzzFarmers to give virtual high fives to anyone who develops a unique (and brilliant) marketing idea worth talking about.
My brother Brandon just turned 30 years old the other day. He’s two years my junior, or seemingly just one year in January and February. Well, seemingly, he’s many years my junior because Brandon is blind, has cerebral palsy, and is developmentally challenged—which I refuse to call mental retardation because nobody knows how to use that word correctly anymore.
Until he and I are a billion years old, I’m his big sister, and I protect him fiercely.
I always tell people that Brandon is the happiest kid you’ll ever meet, even though at thirty years old you should probably stop calling people “kid.” It doesn’t make a difference to him though, cause the only things that make Brandon sad are a lack of mashed potatoes in the house, and not having enough time to do a full cycle of the dishwasher before he goes out.
Since Brandon can’t see with his eyes, he sees the world in other ways, through every type of music, and the sound of a dishwasher going through the soak, wash and dry cycles. Interrupt those and you’ll get a long, “awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Dangit!”
