Brothers fight. Brothers and sisters fight. And sometimes, sh*t gets real.
Such was the case in the Daddo household, many years ago.
“I shot my younger brother,” Andrew Daddo, co-host of our family life podcast This Glorious Mess, told Mia Freedman on the latest episode of No Filter.
Andrew – one of four Daddo brothers – admits that he aimed a slug gun at Lochie Daddo when they were on holiday in the country when they were kids. And it was a good shot.
“We were playing Ned Kelly, and I’d seen him through the trees, and I’d got him on his love handle – and it had actually drawn blood.”
“He had a gun as well,” Andrew said.
Listen as Andrew confesses to Mia Freedman. Post continues after audio.
“I’m not proud,” Andrew said. “But it was a good shot though.”
Thankfully, nobody has been shot since.
But that’s not to say that the siblings still don’t fight. “There’s a certain level of dysfunction there,” says Andrew, the gun slinger, “But I think that’s normal.”
Yes, yes it is. But, you know, guns down, people.
