Single Prompt Option - The Weekend Freewrite - 5/15/2021. black sheep
I remember that when I was little my mother always said, Octavio, one of my brothers is the black sheep of the family, every time he referred to Octavio he expressed himself that way about him, I never managed to understand why my mother said that phrase, he was too small for understand or did not pay attention to it because my mother said that Octavio was the black sheep, he was barely 7 years old. Octavio was the oldest of 7 brothers, he was 25 years old at that time, but what I did realize was that my other brothers worked and helped my mother, and Octavio only did what he did was sleep late, go to many parties and not he collaborated at home, my mother constantly called his attention. Over the years I managed to understand why my mother said that to Octavio, a black sheep, she meant that he was a lazy man, he did nothing to help at home, he kept drinking liquor and smoking, he got into trouble was very misfit and problematic, that made him different from the other members of the family, so Octavio was the black sheep of the family.
