Today my older brother suddenly chatted with me on the Internet. I felt overwhelmed by this unexpected favor. Because he is so busy and rarely talk with me. Some times he came to Beijing, but he even didn't tell me. Obviously, he likes me far more less (much less?) than I liking him. It is the truth since we were very young. When we were kids, I always followed him, and I even stole meat from the kitchen for him. One day he asked me: who will you marry when you grow up? I said: You. He seemed totally didn't care. My answer didn't worth a single glance to him. But I was serious. Anyhow, talked with him made me happy.

Not worth a single glance: 不屑一顾

不屑一顾

"不" only has the forth intonation, but it needs to be changed into the second intonation when the word after it also is the forth intonation. So does "一".
今天我哥哥突然在网上跟我聊天了。我真是受宠若惊。因为他很忙并且很少跟我谈话。有时他到了北京都不告诉我。很明显,他喜欢我明显没有我喜欢他那么多。从我们很小的时候就是这样了。我们小时候,我总喜欢跟着他,并且甚至从厨房偷肉给他吃。有一天他问我:"你长大要嫁给谁?"我说:"你。"他对我的回答不屑一顾。但是,我是认真的。不管怎么样,跟他聊天我很开心。
