As a kid I loved going to the country and staying inn my nana's huge huge farm house. I could go into detail about all the rooms but lets suffice to say that some rooms had names. We normally stayed in the 'family' room which had a cot,, 2 singles, a double, a wardrobe and room to play.
Ok to the point ... I was about 5 and this particular time my brother, 4, and I were sleeping in the 'dark room'. It had 2 singles and some other furniture. The windows were painted black - why? - no idea.
The door had one of those old fashioned locks which is a metal box on the back of the door with a latch that lifts up instead of in and out like on doors today. My brother and I were sent to bed and the door was shut .... and now lights off the dark room was DARK.
In the wee small hours one wee little boy needed to go wee. So up I got and tried to open the door. I tried and I tried and I tried but to no avail. I turned the light on to see if that would help. I just could not turn the knob to get the latch high enough to clear the catch.
Desperation set in. I am scouring the room where to go and then another light switched on ... an idea!!
By this time I am absolutely busting and holding my elephant with one hand I am so grateful I was not circumcised as it created extra storage for what the bladder would hold no more. Ever so gently I peel back my brothers covers down to his thighs. Slowly I release a little pressure on my elephant trying not to squirt everywhere but rather trickle onto his sheets so it all pools around my brother where he has sunk into his matress.
Relief ... bladder empty I pull the blankets back over my 4 yr old brother who got told off for wetting the bed later that morning - never to say a word till we met when our mum was dying and he was 30.
I crawled back into my nice warm dry bed

When i was 8 I told my parents I chipped my front tooth after being pushed down by a bully and hit my face on the pavement. I recently told them (16 years later!) that I actually chipped it trying to flip off the monkey bars and I was too embarrassed to tell them the truth when I was younger.

No big grand story here, but I blamed pretty much anything I ever did on my brother... and it usually worked.
He was such a hot-head, that instead of calmly letting them know I was telling them BS, he would yell and argue and carry on, and just make them angrier and more likely to dish out a worse punishment.
Every now and then these things get brought up, and I proudly admit that it was ME who committed the crime, and successfully framed him instead.

My brother killed my budgie when I was 12. He confessed when I was 20-ish. I don't blame him, it was really sick and would have died anyway.

When I was a kid I used to bath and splash water everywhere, mum used to tell me not to etc. anyway one night she said if I splashed it in the floor again I would get a hiding.
Anyway without intending to splash water on the floor again, I did.
When she came in and yelled at me I told her my cat had come in, jumped up in the basin, used his paw to open the tap and then shook his paws and it splashed all over the floor...
I have no idea why but she believed me.
I told her a few years ago that it was a lie and she was shocked and said she always thought it was the cat...

When we were kids, my sister bit herself, and told mum it was me, I got into trouble and my mum bit me in return.
So in revenge many months later, I got a tiny piece of soap and told my sister it was a lolly. She was not impressed.

I used to go into my brother's room and bite myself. I'd scream and mum would barge in and smack him. One day she saw the whole thing, barged in and smacked me. Never did it again
