An open letter to my baby brother, Samuel Sato:
Yo! Big sis here. First off, bummer you didn’t make it into the world, but thanks for being around for my 28th birthday. I definitely had planned to sneak this amazing Manny’s onesie on you when Mom wasn’t looking. I had also planned on teaching you about the beautiful sport of hockey, badass drummers like Zach Hill, how to brew coffee with a chemex, tips to eat dinner before going to shows at Neumos because otherwise, the hot dog smell will torture you throughout the whole show, how to throw a party and not trash the house, how to act natural in front of a camera, and navigating the confusing nature of our parents! And important stuff, too. But that goes without saying. I guess I’ll have to wait.
Tell Megumi, Grandma Sato, Grandpa Chiba, and God that I say hello.
Hope you’re having fun! See ya when I see ya.
