Writers Workshop- The Punishment

My brother and I used to walk from the bus stop to our house. I remember many times my mom being there but I guess as we got older we were allowed to make the long trek home alone. This wasn't a typical bus stop/walk home like most people would think. This was mostly straight uphill and 1 mile long. Seriously sucky! I am 6 yrs older than my brother, which means my legs are longer and I could walk faster. lol

It seemed like he kept us going at such a slooooow pace. I would walk as usual and then have to stop to wait up for him.....like the good sister I am.

Speaking of being a good sister......Apparently one day I got tired of his slowness and tired of waiting around. What else is a girl to do? Like any normal person would do.....I picked up a rock and threw it in his direction. In his direction equalled hitting him square in the head. OH MY GOD. I was for sure that I just killed my brother and here we were in the middle of nowhere, no one around and blood is squirting out of his head. OMG. I was frantically apologizing, thinking this is my last words to him or something. So I rushed him down the driveway (we were halfway home) to the nearest neighbors house. I don't remember what happened after that until the point where we got him medical attention. I am still shook up and so sorry. My parents thought I needed to be really sorry, I guess. They made me sit in the room while he got his head stitched up. That was some serious punishment!

We both made it out alive.
I don't think I threw any rocks after that and he has no brain damage or anything.
Yikes!

Hmm...that is quite a clever punishment watching those stiches go in! I'll have to keep that in mind if ever I need it (god forbid!!) but knowing my kids (esp. my boys) they would think it was cool to watch!

You threw a rock at his head? Did you hit the FACE part of his head? OMG
Then again, younger siblings, especially those of the 6-7 years younger variety, can be SUCH a pain... I don't really blame you. Seriously.
Poor little you : (

LOL. Sounds like something my sister and I would have done to each other. Good punishment though!

Danielle said...

Geesh, remind me not to ever walk slow around you. If we were to meet that is. :)

Yara, luckily it was in the top of his head so it didnt leave any visible scars.

lol, I didnt think I would really hit him.....it was more of a scare tactic that backfired. I still feel horrible!

Did you have to walk up that hill *both directions*? (Sorry, starting to sound like my father)...

Did your brother ever get back at you for that little mishap?

You've got great aim! lol.

Kinda reminds me of the last time my bros got physical with each other...my one bro threw a metal container at the other and hit him very close to the eye...no one else was home so they had to call an ambulance...totally terrifying for a 13 year old kid.

Does he still tease you about it to make you feel guilty? lol.

Fitting punishment! Poor you...you must have been so scared to see all that blood! It would have really freaked me out, for sure.

That Girl said...
