I like the idea of brothers

I like the idea of brothers having a "unique utensil, like a special fork that they use to grind deep into a sibling’s insides." I can relate to that.

This piece was published as memoir in the magazine, so I'm pretty sure that's a real punch that really landed. I agree, it is totally surprising in the context, but something about it also seems right. I've never punched anyone in the face, but I can imagine that when I do -- or if? -- it will be something like that, out of nowhere.

A pretty good story. I

A pretty good story. I especially like the line about the lack of pitchers in England...seems like kind of a literary observation to me. Also a good way to give background about the character.

I didn't find the punch in the face believable. Given what I'd learned about the characters, it just didn't seem plausible at that moment.
