Story: Zach and the Strawberry Shortcakes

While many of you who have siblings know, they can be a real pain. My brother Zach was a horrid little creature for most of his life and he kept this practice even in his 20's. I remember I once got a package of strawberry shortcake rolls from a bakery and kept them in the refrigerator. I didn't even get the chance to eat one until he claimed he had licked them all in an effort to spite me. I was pretty sure he was messing with me (but not fully confident), but in an attempt to get revenge I outsmarted him. At the time, my mother had a list of bills we owed her for, so I demanded that the shortcakes were now his and that proper adjustments were due. That's what he got for playing jokes, I hope he thought those shortcakes were good. 


  1. Siblings can be a pain in the butt. I haven't spoken to my brother in fifteen years; his choice, not mine.

  2. Haha! I have 2 younger sisters. We all get along now...

  3. Haha, but I think all siblings are like that at some point!

    Almost Stylish

  4. What does Zach think of all this "tell tale" business?
    I reckon my brother and sisters would kill me if I reported
    for all and sundry their youthful pranks etc!

  5. I'd demand an adjustment as well. You want to have your cakes and eat them too!

  6. LOL!!! It sounds like your sibling conflicts were epic. You got the best of Zach in this instance!
