Brother Talk
I called my brother last night while he was at work.

"Hey bro', what's up?"
"Well we've got a dead body here."
"Oh my gosh, I should let you go then!"
"Nah, we're just waiting for the ambulance. This is beyond my medical skills."
"Well, I guess if he's dead, there's no hurry..."
"Actually he might not be dead. He occasionally makes these gasping noises."
"That is definitely NOT completely dead."
"Hey the ambulance is here, I'll call you back in awhile."

He called back an hour or so later.

"So how is the dead guy?"
"He's alive! It was a heroin OD, and they injected him with some kind of drug and he sprang up."
[pause while somebody nearby tells us what drug does that]
"Oh cool."
"Yeah, but when he woke up he was really angry and rude, so it kind of made the whole thing less rewarding."
"You were expecting a heroin addict to be polite?"

[getting down to business, general sister-brother conversation ensues, and we chat for awhile]

"Well, I'll talk to you later. Gotta go fight crime!"


My brother the cop. Funny...but weird!

I didn't know you had a brother.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: September 18th, 2007 05:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yup! He's the father of my nephew and niece.

I see. I knew sister. I do vaguely remember you mentionning him before actually although you mention your niece and nephew a lot more!

Well, they're cuter. (:

My cousin's husband is a cop and it makes for some very interesting conversations.

Damn rude ass heroin addicts. Sheesh.

Ah... the Man in Black's real-life counterpart seems to be something of a letdown.

Who, the cop? No, you'd be hard-pressed to find somebody more dedicated to his job and to "the common folk" than my brother. He just has a twisted sense of humor too.

Actually, I meant the "only mostly dead" object of the conversation...
renniekins From: renniekins Date: September 18th, 2007 10:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
haha! okay that's much better. (:

(Oh, and sorry to get all defensive. I was worrying "Nooo, it was supposed to be funny!")

Pfft. I'd have said the same, were it I.

I'm gonna guess that was some sort of adrenaline that got the guy up and moving again. Based, of course, on my extensive knowledge of illegal drugs and their side effects. :P

...and having seen Pulp Fiction?

Nah, not funny, I get very tense around druggies, have seen them get violent. If C wants to talk about a career change before he completely loses the ability to disriminate between the quick and the dead....
renniekins From: renniekins Date: September 19th, 2007 03:44 am (UTC) (Link)
Well yes of course, that's why one calls the police, as they are trained to handle violence.
cannibal From: cannibal Date: September 19th, 2007 05:30 am (UTC) (Link)
Ah... perhaps you're right. Tell C to call the police. Have him ask for the ones from Gilbert & Sullivan, I love the way they sing, "We go, we go, we go, we go!"

That might just be... yes, yes I think it is... the greatest conversation EVER.

I think the substance might be something called Narcan - and apparently it tends to piss off druggies because it kills their buzz. Even though it leaves them living. ;)

More useful information I have gleaned from reading figent_figary's blog. ;)
