Rodney asks: what's the worst thing a sibling has done to you?
I thought, since I've got 3 brothers, I'd dedicate a whole post to the various attrocities committed in our younger years:-)
Truth be told, there wasn't many bad things my brothers (singly or collectively) did to me. I can remember various arguments and fights, but while I don't remember who had the upper hand, I also don't remember needing to plot revenge because I came off second best (perhaps because I'm the eldest and biggest?)
Maybe my brothers can remember things I did to them. Hopefully they can't, or won't, tell. Maybe we weren't quite as nasty/violent/mischevious as stories I've heard of other families?
Some incidents that spring to mind (no names, to protect the innocent):
- being really punched in the face while play fighting (which in turn made me hit my head against the wall behind me, ouch)
- being laughed at because I broke my arm, falling off the exact same piece of play equipment that a brother had broken his arm on, exactly one week before (hey, that hurt too!)
- being told I was getting old (which, while technically true, is still not a nice thing to hear)
