I always tell myself I will never do something as unChristian as this... Then I see a gay couple and think "I should throw this egg at them"
Lord have Mercy
I'm feeling all anecdotal today.
When I got my license and split from the hell that was my home pretty much for good, my brother called me to stop by.
My brother is a serious fellow. Sorta quiet and easy going. I showed up and he was nearly in tears.
In my family, when a man is nearly in tears it means one of two things:
He is sad. We are not uptight like most of the guys I grew up around and know now about crying.
He is on the verge of homicide.
In this case, it was the latter.
And my brother was not to be trifled with, no matter what age he was and no matter how small he always had been. I bear a scar till this day from my brother taking flesh out of my arm with his teeth when he was about three and half. And the first time I was knocked unconscious it was because of my brother. He took a brick to back of head when I was around eight or so for something that help angered him days prior.
Well, he was bleeding from just below his eye. Someone in a car had thrown an egg at him. He knew who it was and had told them, there were three guys in the car, to meet him at one of the local areas used by us for fighting.
They were two years ahead of him in school and he wanted me to take him to settle the problem.
I had no desire to get into a fight that day so I told my brother I would take him but I wouldn't do anything unless a knife or gun was used.
So I took my little brother to meet these three guys. Each one larger than the next and the smallest larger than my little brother.
After about five minutes, two of the guys were bleeding and unconscious on the ground and my brother beating the one who threw the egg at him just enough so that he remain conscious and forced him to say and do many humiliating things.
This is a long way of saying, be careful how lightly you take throwing eggs at people. God help you if it happens to be someone like my little brother.
