Family Traditions – Abject Humiliation

More re-blog-a-thog!

The Mercenary Researcher

My family is not huge on tradition – but there a few customs that we like to carry on–telling humiliating stories is one of them. Specifically we like to share humiliating stories about my brother…to his girlfriends (he’s married now so I don’t get to tell this story as much as I’d like).  And obviously, when I mean “my family”, I mean the family into which I was born or quite possibly spawned.

Before I begin my story, I have to explain some things.  My brother was a handful. And by ‘handful’ I mean I’m surprised no one actively throttled him during his youth.  He’s the textbook example of someone that doesn’t take “no” for an answer.

I thought the game was to badger them and wear down their resolve until they finally submitted themselves. Just to shut me up, you see. It wasn’t until my mid-20s or so that I realized that nagging was NOT considered to be a legitimate aspect of foreplay. Imagine my surprise!

    That was a really mean thing for your mom to do! And really funny! She’s lucky nobody called social services on her.
