This is a question Siblings

Brothers and sisters - can't live with 'em, can't stove 'em to death with the coal scuttle and bury 'em behind the local industrial estate. Tell us about yours.

Thanks to suboftheday for the suggestion -we're keeping the question open for another week for the New Year

Me and my brother , M, have less than a year’s difference in age (I was born in Sept he was born in May the year after). Due to this we grew up pretty close and would also beat the living crap out of each other when any fighting broke out. Being the eldest I would never give up fighting as I thought an elder sibling losing to the younger one would be a disgrace to older brothers everywhere.

Aaanyway one day back when I was 7 years old we were kicking the crap out of each other and M rather uncharacteristically ran away with threats to tell my mum about me beating him up. Naturally I was still full of energy and ran after him, hoping to get to him first and shut him up before I got a smack from my mother. I heard him in the kitchen and sprinted in, only to realise I couldn’t stop. My brother had actually knocked over my mums mop bucket when entering the kitchen and due to the water from the bucket and lino covered floor I went spinning rather comically over the kitchen floor Bambi on ice style into the washing machine.

Then I started bleeding.

I had cut the back of my head open on the side of the washing machine and was taken to hospital where I had it stitched up.

Even though it was an accident I blamed M for it and eventually got my own back a few days later during our shared bath when, in full view of my mum I punched him square in the face. M then fell backwards and gashed the back of his head on the edge of the bath tap and was then rushed to hospital where the same person that stitched me up stitched his head up too.

We both have scars on the same part of our heads and the hair has not grown back in the area of the scar. Nowadays, both M and I will immediately change the subject if anyone asks how we got them.
