Yesterday, my brother updated his status on fb to say: “2010, Year of the Conservative Revolution. Congrats to Scott Brown, and thank you Massachusetts. God Bless America.”
To which I replied “I just barfed”.
He then said “You know, I don’t need flaming liberals in my life. Sorry sis.”
And then he DELETED ME FROM HIS FRIEND LIST*. And the question begs, am I also deleted from his real life? He did say “in my life”. Hmmm.
*It must be pointed out: he could have just deleted my comment.
I guess the lesson here is that he is such a delicate flower that he cannot handle having ANYONE with opposing views in his fragile little existence. Had I known I was dealing with someone so dainty and weak, I would have tread much more carefully.
I guess I was fooled by his egotistical nature. He *seems* strong and even much like a bully. Had I known how frail he was I would never have dared caused him such stress. I mean, imagine it! Not even the strength to deal with different opinions! How dare I jar his world so! Poor guy!
Also, someone should tell him that when he makes public statements in a forum that actively allows comments- such as a status update with a built-in “comment” button- that he MAY OCCASIONALLY GET COMMENTS that are slightly different from his own opinions. I mean, I know it’s hard to imagine, but it sometimes happens, & even the weakest among us must face this fact.
Or, you know, not update with such inflammatory statements.
So, now I’m off to hit publish and hope to hell he doesn’t find this blog.
P.S. Everyone has a GENETIC RELATION that boggles the mind, right? RIGHT??? Please say yes.
