Do you have any stories about what your brothers used to do to you?
Greg: Ah, yes, you know I think back on some of the crazy fights we had and it is absolutely amazing that we are all still alive.
One time, I was closing the garage door and I didn't see my brother, my oldest brother walking behind me and I pulled the door down and it hit him in the head.
Todd: Right, ooh, ow!
Greg: A complete accident, but he just got so angry. He had a pair of shoes that he was holding in his hand, and I think he was going to polish them or something, and he just took the shoe and he smacked me as hard as he could right in the stomach.
Todd: Oh, that's gotta hurt.
Greg: Oh, it hurt so much. I bent over and I got so angry and I looked in the garage and I saw a big piece of metal pipe
Todd: Oh, no!
Greg: And I held it like a spear, and I ran after him, and he of course ran away. I was chasing him around the house and he ran into the front door, and I threw the spear, as hard as I could, and it went like a, I threw the pipe, and it went like a spear, through the air, and he closed the door right behind him, and it put a hole in the door.
Todd: Oh, man, it was gonna hit him. It would have hit him.
Greg: It would have hit him actually.
Todd: Wow. You don't even want to think what could have happened if it had hit him.
Greg: Yeah, it's amazing that we're still alive. We used to have fights with baseball bats and branches and things.
Todd: Well, it must have been good, made you tough and strong for all the other kids at school.
Greg: Yeah, they thought I was crazy.
