Stuff You Don’t Hear Often

Me: “Got any brothers or sisters?”

Co-worker: “2 brothers.”

Me: “What do they do?”

Co-worker: “Well, one of ’em is a mechanic, and the other one’s in prison for robbing a bank. He was a Navy SEAL and then just kinda took a left turn…”


But it did get me thinking what would I say if my brother were in prison? Here are my reply options thus far:

“He’s, uh, a homebody. A shut-in, really.”

“He’s working on a correspondence degree in law.”

“He’s a tattoo artist.”

“He’s a fitness enthusiast. A body builder of sorts.”
