Describe Misha. (I'm trying to describe Misha to my bro… but I'm bad with words. He makes fun of me for liking him so much, so can you help me out?)
It is hard to describe Misha, because Misha is a surprise.
Every moment of every day, he’s up to something new; but he enjoys that. He
enjoys the shock, the newness—the adventure, and he enjoys bringing that out in
other people. He’s that one crazy friend who always gets you to break the
rules, and even though it scares the shit out of you, you always feel more
alive when everything is said and done. Misha isn’t inherently “good” even with
all the charity work that he does. He likes to tease people; he makes mistakes
and will cuss up a storm. He’s lewd and has no problem with making everyone
around him blush with the dirty, dirty things he’ll say … but you find that you’re
grateful for all these “imperfections” because they all make him human. They
make him approachable. They make him relatable;
and that I think is what makes us
love Misha the most.
He is like us … he’s goofy and nerdy and messes things up over and over again. He’s a giant child in an adult body. He opens his mouth and lets his brains fall out onto the floor, and sometimes it looks like modern art, and other times it looks like a homicide—but he keeps moving forward no matter the mess he left behind him, because he knows the ultimate goal is just to keep living. Misha keeps dreaming.
He’s relatable, yes … and that
then makes us focus on him; and when we do, we see all the effort he puts into
each and every day. He is always fighting, always trying to better the world,
always wanting to make people smile, whether it’s with a kind act or a dirty
joke. He does have his moments of complete, mature, adult responsibility and
those inspire us too. He is a beacon to all of us who are struggling just to
get by—shining through the fog and saying “Hey, people like us … we can be happy.” Yes, the man brings smiles to faces, but he also
teaches people how to keep them there. He shows people how to find happiness within themselves; and that’s a talent that not enough people posses.
I think if you tell your brother that, then he just might begin to see why you love Misha so much.
