To JOSH



Josh.
Circa 1987.

About Joshua B:
Joshua Charles Bogart was born on August 10th, 1984 (two years, one month, and two days before his favorite sibling). As a young child, Joshua liked Ninja Turtles, dinosaurs, and girls. His acquired his first girlfriend, Emily, at the age of six. Josh also like Ghostbusters. In fact, he wanted to be Bill Murray when he grew up. He also loved to torment his two younger sisters, often pushing them off of benches and pulling their hair whenever the timing was right.



His best friend was Nathan. And though he was afraid to admit it, he loved his little sister Elisabeth the most. He taught her to catch frogs and he took the training wheels off her bike all by himself, forcing her to fearlessly ride without them. Once, when said sister was in her awkwardly shy years in elementary school, Josh caught some boys on the bus making fun of her. Josh's response. Stalking. He noted who her attackers were and without any second thought, pummeled each of these elementary school aged punks to the ground, leaving them crying for their mothers (his mother would not find out his actions until another mother showed up on their doorstep, a black eyed child in tow). Thus, he was a good brother. No- he is a good brother.

Happy 25th, bro. I love you.
