Accident MagnetGoing anywhere with my little brother is always an exciting adventure.
Whether we are eating dinner, playing soccer, apple picking, or tanning on the beach.
It’s always the same routine.
One second everything is perfect, the next second “THUMP THUMP THUMP”, he falls down the stairs.
Or “EWWWW THERE IS A WORM IN MY APPLE!”
Accidents follow my brother around like a little puppy dog.
There’s nowhere that he can go to to escape his misfortune.
It’s as if he attracts these accidents to him like a magnet attracts metal.
Watching him play in a soccer game is always a thrilling, yet horrifying event to observe.
Tweeet, the whistle blows, and before you have a second to blink,
You hear the crowd say in unison, “ooooooh” and hear a loud “CRACKKK”.
Sure enough the accident magnet did it again.
His wrist was a noodle shape, like an S
Clearly this was serious and yet I couldn’t help but think, “I knew this was coming”.
He’s just an unlucky guy and bad things happen to him.
Although the accident magnet is almost always on the ground, he is able to escape his reputation every now and then.
And no matter what, he is still my lil’ bro.
