‘Be careful what you wish for’ my mum always warned. She was a textbook pessimist, always on hand to point out the potentially bad outcome.
My brother very quickly morphed into her mini me. I took to calling him ‘Worst Case Scenario Boy’ and enjoyed pushing his limits a little too far.
That day he had told me the branch wasn’t secure. But what branch is? I called him a wuss and bullied him out a bit further.
I’d still be laughing at the memory of his bulging eyes, had it not been the last time they looked at me.
