My oldest brother is the only brother I talk to now. The other is one of the nazi’s here in the USA. My oldest brother has led a very sheltered life and never learned computers. He does not know about caller ID. Today he called me and he asked how I knew it was him. I told him because I saw his name show up on my phone. He found this odd almost insulting, it seemed. He started to ramble about, “Well why use my first name why not (this or that or that or that or that)? I got MOCK angry and yelled at him “BECAUSE THAT IS YOUR NAME AS I WROTE IT DOWN WITH YOUR NUMBER! IF I HAD WANTED TO CALL YOU DICK FACE IT WOULD SHOW UP THAT DICK FACE WAS CALLING!” He was taken aback by that little rant and then we both started laughing our asses off because nobody but ME uses such language with him in his sheltered life knowing family that I believe have led very insulated lives. I grew up in a family that did no USE such language! Oh no! No dick cock pussy mutherfucker etc words! I know my parents knew about such words but my mother was very proper and prim and would never use such words. I recall being in what was Junior High back then and one coming home from school and asking mom what a “prick” was. She was shocked and told me very matter of factly, ” a prick is a penis” then she asked me why I wanted to know. “Because one of the kids at school called me that today”. I recall her nodding and continuing about whatever she was doing. I left it at that. But I know my parents knew what THE BAD WORDS WERE but never used them. Working in the factory I was called every vile thing imaginable and returned it. It got so it was and IS just noise to me. So if I called my brother “dick face” it was bullshit funny stuff. I have fun using words with my brother that nobody used with him in his sheltered sort of life. What is offensive is EMOTION with the words. RAGE. Not cool. With my bro’, it’s all bullshit talk. I ACT angry but always crack up using THE WORDS on him. He for his part uses what I think of as archaic phrases like “peachy keen” and I say, “speak English! What the fuck are you trying to say?”
I’ll leave it at that ;-)
I love my dick face older brother ;-)
But I’ll just his number with his first name on it.
