Island of Fire
I have a brother. He’s 17(going on 18). He’s been here for almost 3 years so he doesn’t know much about American Culture and the ways of the People. He works with my Dad in the Dealership my Dad owns.
He does side jobs for the dealership and the other businesses my Dad owns. But lately he has been coming to work late and I gotta hear about it because, IDK why, the Lord deemed me the Mediator.
My Dad is complaining about my brother being late, blah blahize blah, he needs to be responsible, yack yack, he’s a dumbass, etc,etc.
He drops,”I know why he’s been coming around late. He wants to hang out with that Little Bitch near the Base.”
What girl are you talking about?
"That little 13 year old Bitch. I told him not to be around her because she’s a Bitch. Stupid Bitch."
Why is she a bitch?
"Just look at her. The way she walks, the way she talks, she hangs around with all the boys in the neighborhood, she’s a dirty bitch!"
Pause the story.
I was crying from the laughter. Tears of true hilarity were rolling down my red cheeks. He killed me.
Papi, don’t you mean she’s a slut?
"No, she’s a Bitch".
I. Just. Couldn’t. I laughed for 5 minutes straight. My Dad looked at me like he was ready to give me CPR.
My Dad, like so many other men, confuse the two terms.
- a malicious, unpleasant, selfish person, especially a woman.
2. a lewd woman.
Slut–noun 1. a dirty, slovenly woman.
2. an immoral or dissolute woman; prostitute.
See the difference?
I tried to teach my Dad but he’s a tough man to change. He’s been wearing the same kind of socks for 30 years. He doesn’t buy new clothes, all his clothes are in mint condition but he does buy sneakers.
He is a man that is hard to change, kinda looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
My Dad is my Hero.
