For The Friday Reminder – Stream of Consciousness


My brother grabs his sides as I throw my now empty mug across the room.

‘Oi, that nearly hit me,’ he says, between his bursts of laughter.

‘Next time it will,’ I say, putting the kettle on to boil again.

He has always been the joke, but on Halloween, he gets way worse. There is two years difference between us. One day I will get him back, but that will have to wait. I’m already late for my meeting, but I need coffee.

‘While you’re there, make us a brew,’ he says.

I smile, as I reach inside the cupboard. My hands hover over the coffee granules, and the gravy. Maybe my revenge won’t take so long after all.
