Most of my communication with my brother is via email. This works out quite nicely for me as his emails are usually the most entertaining part of my day. Today, for example, I emailed him this morning, irritated because he put me on the listserve of the most notorious spam email sender of all time. I finished my email by saying “Eff you.”
He responded with an email that dropped the f bomb about 97495 times and told me that saying “f” instead of it was dumb, but basically that saying “eff” was just about the worst thing you could ever do. Ever.
So, I stand corrected.*
Then, this afternoon, he sent an email titled “So excited” that said this:
That reminds me of that song. Anyway, it’s not in reference to that song it’s in reference to the miniature deep fryer I bought today. It looks awesome. I won’t have time to unpack it until next week, but holla it looks cool.
Funny thing, I bought the deep fryer and a fitness scale at the same time, that’s right I like to live ironically. Either that or I’m just the most American American of all time.
He then followed that up with this email:
Is it gay that I want to sing this at karaoke?
…or is it gay that I really just want to wear that outfit and learn the dance?
I’m so glad these show up in my inbox every day.
*Due to the rating of this blog, I will continue to avoid using the f word. If you need to hear the word, may I recommend the movie The Departed? It’s excellent.
