Writing Workshop

This is one of Mama Kat's writing workshop prompts. I can't link her because the linker machine is not working. Google her if you would like to read her blog! It is cool. 

1.) Describe the best/most creative punishment you have ever given your children or received yourself.

When my brother was approximately this age.......

I was approximately this age......

.....we were taking a bath and my mom left us alone for a little bit. 
My brother pointed to the Johnson&Johnson shampoo and said, "Juice." 
I, being the helpful big sister than I am, gladly filled a play cup from the bathtub with some J&J to quench my dear little brother's thirst. 
He drank some, my mom came in, and guess what I had as my drink at dinner that night? 
Johnson and Johnson. 

And then this one time, I was babysitting my brother and his friend when they were probably 11 and I was 15. I was downstairs in my room and they were on our third floor balcony throwing water balloons at passing cars and one HIT A GUY IN THE HEAD THROUGH IS SUNROOF!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

He came to our front door in his wet Lacoste shirt SO MAD and it was HILARIOUS but I did a good job at pretending to be serious and concerned for my delinquent brother who throws water balloons at people when I was actually just impressed with how good his aim was.

That story has nothing to do with this writing prompt, as I don't remember what his punishment was, but it was really funny and I wanted to share.

That water balloon story is awesome! A one in a million shot, that was. What does shampoo taste like?

That was a great shot!!! You know it was good when you can remember the shot and not the punishment it was good enough to be worth whatever the consequence would be. LOL

Oh my gosh. I can't even imagine drinking J&J! What a cocktail! Did it make you remember never to do crummy things to your brother again : )
