I Am So Not Showing This To My Bride

So we’re having fun over at Laura’s talking about ways we’ve tried to bump off creatively interact with our siblings and THS points out this news story to me

A Center Point woman who says she accidentally stabbed her brother to death while she was doing the dishes will not be charged with any crime, authorities said today.

…The sister told investigators her brother came up behind her and startled her.

“She quickly turned around and the knife went in his chest,” Christian said.

What scares me is I’m sure my Bride would be able to explain how she was so startled by me that the knife went in…seven or eight times.

    “Shot himself in the back of the head – six times.”

    I’d be more likely to stab myself if startled–such is my level of coordination.

  3. Laura says:

    Or you fell “several times.”

    Mu brothers and I spent almost all of our adolescence planning murder upon each other. Seriously.

    My brother is five years younger than me. Of course that meant that every time my parents were out, I was in charge. They woul dtellme ot make sure he did X chore. When it came time for him to do so, he would yell and scream – “You’re not mom and dad,” etc. At the time, all I knew was that I was going to get in trouble if that chore wasn’t done so I’d keep trying to force him until eventually (and yes, this happened every time) he’d pull a knife from the kitchen drawer and threaten to stab me. Thank God he never heard of this story back then.

    Hmmm…SE MN woman? Bad news, Bingley, once will probably do it if she’s anything like my cousins.

    Maybe NJ Sue’s coordination is in the dryer.

  8. Rob says:

    Now I have another reason for not disturbing the wife while she’s doing dishes. That she might stop was enough … but now …

  9. don says:

    Crying laughing @ mojo’s comments and that would be some kind of “startling” at seven or eight times.

    I can honestly understand how this story can happen.

  10. NJSue says:

    Would that be the dryer that my sister tried to murder me in?

  11. Ave says:

    Well sorry but you were a very irritating 3-yr-old and something just had to be done.
