Ghost Rider... Word

I don't believe in karma there are some truly awful things that happen and I know it's not because of their actions.

Still, it's satisfying to see people get what they deserve.

I have a brother and he's older than me. No hallway or doorway was safe. You never knew when he was going to jump out. On several occasions shoved his socks in my mouth after football practice. He gave me welts by making his ring finger go perfectly limp, then whipping me with it. He chased my sisters and I on a moped and the fact that it was pink didn't lessen the fear (well maybe a little).

The other day I was talking to my brother's wife. I heard a scream in the background and sigh from the sis-in-law.

"What is it?" I asked.

"It's child #2 he isn't happy unless child #3 is upset."

I laughed maniacally for a long time.

As I've been cursed a hundred times over by my parents to have children as difficult as I was a kid...I can feel your brother's pain...or at least his wife's.

Ha ha! So true about kids! When you get up to 6, they gang up to make sure everyone else isn't happy.

Man...I can't WAIT to be a parent and see what kids I get "stuck/blessed" with!

Strangely my wife posted a similar complaint on her blog, although, it sounds like you had it significantly worse
