  • One morning my brother sat in our family’s kitchen, happily hoisting a teetering forkful of pineapple upside down cake into his mouth.

    He’d already eaten half the cake I’d made for a co-worker’s birthday. When I started screaming at him, he just stared at me a while. Then, he walked out of the house, carrying the cake, and smeared the remainder onto my windshield.

    “Have fun driving to work,” he said.

    I hated him.

    He was 16, I was 18 and we’d been taking turns being cruel to each other for years.
