you’re watching what?

today i got stuck in traffic, per usual.  so to stave off the excess boredom, i first called laura (brutha) and we chatted for an hour.  let me just point out that i called her from the entrance ramp to 495 and when we got off the phone, i was STILL on 495.  anyway.

when i was on father hurley, i decided to call my actual brother to see how he was.  i figured it was a good time to chat.  he picks up and we start talking away and he’s drinking a beer and his friends are in the background.  we’re talking about my impending trip to miami (which he offered to join.  in his words with some censorship, “you work, i’ll F around then we’ll go out and party.  sound good?)  love the brother and his wonderful influence.  (i really do love my brother.  we’re very different, but i wouldn’t call him for no reason except to chat about God knows what unless i actually loved him) 

so then he goes, hold on a sec.  i say k and the following happens:
“are you F***ing kidding me?  he’s so slow….mumble, the F bomb, another curse.”-brother
“mumbling….” brother’s friend
“naw man, the F***er sucks.  he’s pulling off at like 3.8.  this is like dragging.” – brother
“mumbling.  your sister is still on the phone asshole.” -friend
“i know she is!  she knows i’m talking about this.  shut the F*** up and drink your beer.” – brother
then there’s some more yelling about whatever they’re watching and i start laughing.
“Whatcha laughin about over there?” Brother asks and i can hear the smile.
“bahahaha, you sound like i do when i’m watchin football and hockey.  what are you watchin anyway?”-me
“a tractor pull.”-brother.

silence.

“you still there?”  brother asks
“yep.”-me
“what’d you get quiet for?” brother asks
“i had to process the fact that you’re not watching street racing or something like that and that you’re actually arguing and cursing over a tractor pull.”-i say calmly.
“need more time?”-brother
“yep.”-me
“alright.  i’ll call ya when i get to o.c. this weekend and we’ll talk about miami.”-brother
“love you.”-me
“love ya too.”-brother
