When you first meet Marlon, you’ll probably get the impression that he’s the shyest member of our family. Well, don’t let him fool you, it’s true that Marlon is sort of quiet and very serious about his work, but once you get to know him better, you’ll discover that there’s another side to his personality. He is very friendly and very funny! In fact, Marlon is the witty member of our family and he keeps us laughing all the time. Since Marlon and I are the closest in age, we pal around together and share many of the same interests. For instance, the two of us used to be “cartoon crazy” and we used to spend a lot of time in front of the television set watching our favorite cartoon shows. Our favorite sport is swimming, he is just like a real fish, cos he can stay in the water for hours at a time! When we lived in Gary, before we moved to California, we had never been to a beach, so he was very happy to live on the west coast with beautiful, sunny weather, lots of beaches, and a swimming pool, right in our backyard! Sometimes he likes to go off by himself, when he does, it usually means he wants to be alone, I know how much is privacy is important to him. I can only add that if he weren’t my brother I’d want him to be my best friend, in other words I really like him.
