I am a wonderful sister. I never realized how true this
statement is until swapping "how I tortured my younger sibling"
stories with a few friends. The worst thing I have ever done to my siblings was
that I tried to convince my brother Chris that a bowl filled with dirt was
actually crushed up Oreos. I even went as far as eating a tiny bit myself to
prove it to him. Unfortunately, that didn’t work, so the whole thing backfired
on me and I was the only one who ate any dirt.
One of my classmates has a younger sister who had severe asthma when she was a
child. My classmate would sneak up on her sister when she was sleeping and
cover her mouth and nose so she couldn’t breathe. The poor girl would wake up
in a complete panic, thinking she was dying from an asthma attack.
Another friend of mine hated her little brother. They went with their
mom to a crafts store, and my friend slipped a spool of thread in her brother’s
pocket. When they left the store, her brother pulled the thread out of his pocket
to see what it was. Their mom saw him with the "stolen" thread, and
made him go back inside to return it and apologize to the manager. My friend
enjoyed the whole scene, especially her brother getting into deeper trouble
when he refused to confess to his crime.
Now that I think about it, there was one awful thing I did to my
older brother, but it wasn’t exactly on purpose. We were in the van on a long road trip
and he suggested a game. I had a pencil and he had a pillow, and the game was
that I would try to stab him with the pencil while he blocked with the pillow.
Sounded like fun to me, so I stabbed him right in the arm (I truly thought he
would block it). The tip broke off the pencil into his arm, and he was crying
in pain. My poor mom had to pull the van over and when she saw the tip of the
pencil in his arm, she panicked and drove right to the ER (she didn’t want him to
get lead poisoning). It ends up that pencils aren’t made of lead, so he was ok,
and to keep me out of trouble, he told my mom that he had accidentally stabbed
himself while drawing. What a great brother!
