Power Up Count Down

| Siblings, Top

(My house has been without power for about three days. My older brother has been constantly saying that he knows exactly when the power will come back on, just to annoy me. At my wit’s end, I call him out on this.)

Me: “Fine! If you’re so smart, when’s the power coming back on?”

Brother: “It’ll be on by the time I get to one. Three…Two…”

(After that, he just walks away without another word. Two more days pass when, suddenly, the lights flicker on. My brother rushes into my room.)

Brother: *smugly* “…one!”
