Ribbing Your Big Brother

| Related | April 8, 2014

(We’re in a nice restaurant. My younger sister, about nine years old, has just ordered the ribs but doesn’t actually know what they are. I’m trying to explain it to her by using the rest of the family, and my older brother, as an example.)

Me: “We all have ribs; they’re part of your body.” *I gesture at my chest* “You have them here-ish. I’ve got ribs and all the other parts. See?”

Me: “[Brother] has ribs and everything else too, apart from an appendix.”

Brother: *nods solemnly*

Me: “And his masculinity.”

Brother: *pauses for a second, and then nods again*
