This Weeks Assignment

Yah! So this week Kat has assigned the following prompts. I could possible pick a couple however, with this headache that I've had all day, which has gotten better, I will only pick one for now.

1. Put Shaggy (Scooby Doo's partner) and Batgirl in an elevator and write a 200 word scene.
2. Write about a time you hid from someone, or a time you disguised who you really were.
3. List 10 things worth saving then choose one of those things and write about it.
4. What did you do before we had the internet?

I choose.........#2!

Boy, how I could come up with many stories on how I hid from someone. One person in brother! LOL Growing up with A brother, MY brother, he more or less tormented me. In school, he was two grades ahead of me so when we were in Junior High and High School, he was always one of the "big guys on campus". Everyone knew my brother and I was always referred to as "Bobby's little sister".

Back at home, during summer vacation, my parents would be at work and it would just be Bobby and I. Most of the time my mom would wake me up to go over the daily chores. Also, she just loved my company and wanted me to be up with her while she got ready for work (I feel!!). So anyways, on those days that she woke me early, I would usually just start getting ready cause I knew what I would be in for when the time came when Bobby would wake up. I would make sure I was all showered and my chores were done. When he would get up, I was like "Bye" and I would meet my friend, Wendy half way to her house and hang out with her the rest of the day until my mom got off work.

On the days that I slept in, now that was another story. He would wake me by playing the stereo in the front room (which backed up to my bedroom) so loud that the walls would rattle. Those were the days of Guns N Roses and Metallica. Back then, I didn't like that music. Today is another story. Anyway, Bobby would also chase me around the house with my dad's bb gun and pull the trigger saying "It's not loaded" as I would reply back "Accidents happen!!" Or, he would just chase me out of the house in my pj's. My neighbors on numerous occasions had caught this in action. It was just too much that I would just end up hiding from him. I would even hide in the bathroom and lock the door to avoid getting beaten up. I would stay in there until I knew he left.

Today, we get along and give each other hugs every time we see each other. Something that was unheard of back in the day. I love my brother very much and I am happy I can call him my brother! With my brother in mind, today is his birthday so..............HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOBBY!! I LOVE YOU!!

I must say...Bobby was such an ass back then. He sure did change. You do have a pretty good big bro. Happy Birthday Bobby.
