We were staying at our nanas on the country. Big 100 year old stone house on about 5 acres on the top of the yorke peninsula.
I never new the front door was the feont door till i was an adult as they only ysed the back door.
Coming in from the front door was a wide hall with a bedroom off to the left. We called this the family room as it had a double bed, two single beds, a lock up cot (safe from mozzies but once in you couldnt get out) a fire place, wardrobe amd room to play. This is the room we usuallu stayed in as a family.
To the right was the 'honey room'. Equally large and my grand father extracted honey in there. The hall continued down to a 'T' junction
To the right it led to my grandparents room. To the left it ran into another corner and cotinued line with the main hall. In the extended section there was a door to the left and right
On the right was the preserves room. 12 foot high shelving on all walls full of preserved fruit
On the left was the dark room. Called the dark room becaise the wondows were painted black. It was a small room and we aeldom went i there. It had a bed against the hall wall, skinny space for a bedside table, another single bed and a wardrobe running parallel to the bed with barely room to open it againzt the bed.
The hall terminated at a door and stwpped down at the threshold. This led to a large lounge / family room. Off the room to the left was another bedroom with two single beds and then the telephone room (axtually an office) to the right a large long bathroom and kitchen. An old kitchen as big as a double bedroom was beyond that which was converted to a laundry and a toilet near the back door beyond another hall way and enterance area.
This particular visit my brother and I were placed in the dark room to sleep. I guess my dad was feeling amorous? The doors had those old fasioned locks that were a metal box on the back of the doors. Instead of sliding in and out the latch lifted up. You could only turn the handle one way to open it.
It was the middle of the night and i woe needing to pee. I got up and tried to open the door. It wouldnt open. I kept trying to no avail so turned the light on. By now I am getting desperate. I am literally holding on to my elephant. Looking arund in desperation i consider peeing in the wardrobe or in the corner.
As an uncircumcised male i had an advantage. By now the 'ballon' factor had started to kick in. But this made the dituation all the more desperate as my bladder had started to fail.
Looking around the room sunk n the middle of an old fashioned bed with mo springs in it or the mattress I see my brother sleeping.
A light bulb moment.
I peel back the cover with.my one free hand to expose his waist. Then geipping my trunk with both hands ... if you let go of a balloon to quick there is no control where it will go ... a ****** starts to run from the side of the bed and pool around his waist.
Once completey drained i pull the covers back over him, turn off the light and get back into my warm dry cozy bed. He got in trouble for wetting his bed.
I never told him till I was about 30.
